Tiruchi Division of Southern Railway observes Energy Conservation Week

Tiruchi Division of Southern Railway is observing energy conservation week from December 10 to 15.

An energy booth was opened at Tiruchi Railway Junction on Monday to create awareness among public and railway staff of ways to conserve energy.

The Divisional Railway Manager, Manjula Rangarajan, opened the booth in the presence of railway officials.

Exhibits have been displayed to highlight energy saving measures such as replacement of incandescent bulbs with CFL lamps, replacement of resistance-type fan regulator with electronic-type regulator, use of timers for lighting circuit in railway colonies and stations, and using electronic choke and T5 fittings instead of conventional choke.

A brochure containing energy conservation tips was released on the occasion. The brochures were distributed to public visiting the booth, a press release here said.
