The National Energy Efficient Fan Programme (NEEFP) is a Government of India scheme for Indian households and businesses. Under the scheme, energy-efficient ceiling fans will be provided at a discounted price and with EMI option. National Energy Efficient Fan Programme was launched on April 7, 2016 in Vijaywada, Andhra Pradesh. The National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Programme was also launched on the same day.
The scheme will be implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL). Consumers may purchase the fans by opting for a Rs. 60 per month EMI (equated monthly installment) for 2 years or by paying Rs. 1250 upfront. Vijayawada became the first Indian city to implement the National Energy Efficient Fan Programme.
Save energy by promoting the use of energy-efficient ceiling fans through a Government supported distribution scheme. The 5-start rated, 50 Watts ceiling fans are 30% more energy efficient than the conventional fans. So, they will consume less energy and the consumers will save around Rs 700 -730 per year on their electricity bills.
