Nine billion rupees will be saved annually through the use of efficient electric bulbs. Minister Patalie Champika Ranawaka made this observation when he participated in the Power Cable Programme launched by the Sunethya Energy Authority.

The Minister said that the households can save 12 to 15 percent of electricity through the usage of efficient bulbs. This would save 400 Giga-watt hours. He said that this amounts to a saving of 8 to 9 billion rupees for the Ceylon Electricity Board which amounts to the annual expenditure on Samurdhi beneficiaries .
