In a major move to boost conservation of energy, state-owned power distribution company Paschim Gujarat Vij Company (PGVCL) will encourage farmers to invest in five-star rated energy-efficient irrigations pumps for their farms. This will not only reduce electricity bills of farmers by 20 per cent but also significantly reduce load on the power grid. Of the total power supplied by PGVCL, 35 per cent to 38 per cent goes to farmers of the Saurashtra region.
