Recognizing the need to curb wastage of energy, TATA Power, India's largest integrated power utility took the lead and started a unique nationwide initiative of energy conservation through school children called "Tata Power Club Enerji".
Today, through this novel initiative, Tata Power Club Enerji sensitized over 5,900 children across 10 schools in Kolkata. These children have further reached out to more than 12,800 people, thereby taking the total sensitization figure to over 18,700 citizens. Together these citizens have saved more than 20,000 units of electricity in the year. The Club this year has made 490 new Energy Champions, 590 Energy Ambassadors and 5 mini Club Enerjis' to spread this movement. The energy saving programme has also been taken up as a project in various other schools of Kolkatta too.
Club Enerji has been active in Kolkata for two years and has sensitised more than 49,000 citizens, who have saved 54,000 units of energy and has 1,099 Energy Champions and 2,506 Energy Ambassadors till date.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Anil Sardana MD of TATA Power said that "It's heartening to note that 'Tata Power Club Enerji' has become a successful movement in Kolkatta and is playing a vital role in aiding young minds, who have been the core influencers in advocating energy and resource conservation. At Tata Power, we are committed to conserving energy and combating climate change."
'Tata Power Club Enerji', is active in schools in ten prominent cities of India viz. Mumbai, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Pune, Jamshedpur, Lonavla, Belgaum, Haldia, Bengaluru and Kolkata.

Over 4.3 million citizens have been sensitized across the country and more 5.8 million units of electricity have been saved till date.
