Conserving energy is vital in today’s scenario. India is facing a considerable deficit in the supply of electricity. The demand far outweighs the supply.
Therefore, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency has launched its standards and labelling programme in 2006. They have since started rating electrical and electronic appliances on a scale of 1 to 5 depending on their energy efficiency.
BEE has now launched a programme supporting the manufacturing of super-efficient appliances starting with the ceiling fan.

What is a super-efficient ceiling fan?
What do the numbers say?
Let us compare the numbers about the performance of the super-efficient ceiling fans vis-à-vis the regular fans, and the BEE start rated fans.
|Regular Ceiling fan||BEE 5-star rated fan||Super-efficient fan|
|Cost of the appliance||₹ 1500||₹ 2000||₹ 3500|
|Yearly Consumption in units (8 hours a day)||219||145||102|
|Yearly Electricity Cost @ ₹ 5 per unit||₹ 1095||₹ 730||₹ 511|
Thus, you notice that the super-efficient fan will recover the difference in the costs within three and a half years.
The technology behind the Super-efficient fans
Also, you will find the replacement of some electrical components like the capacitor and so on with electronic components like microcomputers.
The change you experience with the use of super-efficient ceiling fans
Considering the power situation in India, it is advisable for all households to switch over to the super-efficient fans one by one. You end up saving considerable power that can be put to better use at a national level.
