A green initiative from IGL

It is a well-known fact that NCT of Delhi & NCR faces grave threat to health & well-being of its citizens due to air pollution particularly in winter season, wherein the levels of pollutants like Particulate Matter Concentration (PM 2.5 and PM 10) go beyond acceptable limit for Air quality index. In order to curb Emissions/ Air Pollution in NCT of Delhi & NCR, a Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) is enforced every year from the month of October till March wherein operation of Electricity Generation Sets running on Diesel/Petrol/Kerosene of all capacities are banned.

Nowadays, the technology of conversion of diesel gensets to gas / retro-fitment is also being widely used in Housing Societies, Hotels, Commercial Complex as well which gives you not only quality power but also reduces the price of power back up. Seeing is believing, at IGL you get assistance in techno commercial analysis, field visits to see currently running gas operated gensets and have end user feedback on mechanism.

On the statutory front notices from authorities such as:
1. DPCC (Delhi pollution Control Committee) vide order no. DPCC/(1)(1)(314)/Air Lab/2021/199-209 Dated: 02ndJuly’21 has banned usage of Diesel Genset with a capacity of 125 KVA and above in the NCT of Delhi.
