Name Contest for EESL's schemes on energy efficiency

About EESL:

Interestingly, saving electricity comes out to be cheaper than producing it. Laying our focus on this premise, country's premier public sector undertaking, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), was designated the task of carrying out pan India energy efficiency projects and increase the count of saved units to light up the remaining dark corners of India. Our LED programmes are the world’s largest programmes across domestic lighting and street lighting sector. Today, EESL is running successful energy efficiency schemes like UJALA (Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All), Street Light National Programme (SLNP), Agricultural Pump Distribution Scheme and the National Energy Efficient Fan Programme. Very soon, EESL will roll out its energy efficient tube lights programme.

What we want?

Domestic Appliances Scheme name: EESL has already distributed over 14 crore LED bulbs across India. EESL is successfully running its Fan Programme which aims to distribute 5-star rated energy efficient ceiling fans amongst general public. In addition, with its national tube lights programme, EESL will provide LED tube lights that have a life expectancy of 40,000 hrs and are available in 18 Wtt (including choke).

EESL would like to bring all its domestic appliances under one umbrella and give a unique identity to that umbrella narrative, per say. Hence, entries are invited for an appropriate collective name/title to represent all domestic appliances of EESL- LED bulbs, energy efficient fans and tube lights under one roof. As the schemes are being run as part of the Government of India initiative, the name should preferably be on the lines of “Pradhan Mantri __________ Yojana”. It should be simple and have mass appeal/ reach.

Your creative inputs would enable the organization to better communicate itself to the world and thereby improve the effectiveness of Government programmes.
