- Havells will reach out to 6000 customers applying for new connection
- The companies will have awareness program for installation of circuit protection device
Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) has joined hands with Havells India to deploy electrical leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) in North and North western parts of Delhi. Havells circuit protection devices will be available across all Tata Power-DDL Customer Care Centers at subsidized price from the first of October.
Sanjay Banga, CEO, TPDDL, said, “Tata Power-DDL is committed to consumer safety and has joined hands with Havells to drastically reduce the electricity related accidents which result in loss of life and property. I urge all consumers to install a suitable device for earth leakage protection at their homes/ premises. To further reinforce the need of electricity safety, we will also be sensitizing consumers and arranging for trainings of local electricians on the importance and implementation of safe technology.”
The two companies have also planned an awareness and training program to encourage adoption of proper installation of circuit protection devices – ELCB and MCB (Miniature Circuit Breakers).
Havells plans to reach out to over 6000 customers
According to Havells, it plans to reach out to over 6000 customers who are applying for new connections very month on an average along with 17 lakh residential and industrial users of Tata Power-DDL.
As per the regulatory guidelines of Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) ELCBs are compulsory for a new connection. ELCBs are extremely critical in ensuring human safety as they protect us from current leakage. ELCBs are important as they protect the human body from current leakage. Deploying MCBs is very common but they do not protect the human body when it comes to current leakage.
Saurabh Goel, President, Havells India Ltd said, “The association will help us sensitize consumers on the need to incorporate best in class protection devices in their homes and together we shall ensure that consumers are aware of the use of Earth-Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB) through TATA Power-DDL Customer Care Centers.”
