      Planning Commission,
      Parliament Street.

      New Delhi 110001

       
      Subject: Urgent information required about “Energy Saving Option” that could be introduced in a big way in India this winter itself if GOI introduces Tax incentives for such options under RTI Act to the following questions mentioned as below numbering from 1 to 6.
       
      Source Of Information; Kirit Parikh, Member Planning Commission
       
      Time; Within Seven Days.
       
      Related To Energy Policy; (Most Urgent)
       
      1. It is a fact that “Instant Gas Water Heaters” operate at 85% thermal efficiency when Gas Power Plants in operate at 45% efficiency and over 20% electricity is lost in transmission. Thus electric water heating results in just 35% efficiency. What recommendations Planning Commission has made to save 65% energy loss in heating water?
       
      2. It is also a fact Instant Gas Water Heaters were first introduced in 2002 that now cost only Rs.2500/-. How many Instant Type Gas Water Heaters have been sold in India with state wise details?
       
      3. Is it not a fact that electric geysers or electric water heating emersion rods of 1 kW to 3 KW rating are used to heat water and majority of the homes use electricity for water heating that is primary cause of grid overloading in winters resulting in power cuts?
       
      4. Is it not a fact that over two million electric geysers and electric water heating emersion rods are used in each metro city Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkutta? Instant gas water heaters could avoid 4,000 MW of connected load in each of these metro cities. What recommendations Planning Commission has made to reduce connected load by this technology?
       
      5. Is it not a fact that reduced connected load of 12,000 MW in three metro cities can light up all the un electrified villages and avoid power cuts in north, west and east India?
       
      6. Is there any vested and commercial interest of BSES, TPC, CESC of losing revenue that comes in way of Planning Commission avoiding recommending incentives to technology that uses gas at 85% efficiency in water heating when electric power efficiency is just 35% at consumer end.
