As part of an environmental initiative, more than 1.84 lakh electricity consumers in Maharashtra have embraced the ‘Go-Green’ scheme, opting for e-mail and SMS notifications over traditional paper bills. This cumulative effort has resulted in an annual saving of over Rs. 2.21 crore, marking a substantial leap towards sustainable practices.

Pune emerges as the frontrunner, with 1.23 lakh electricity consumers in the Pune area alone choosing electronic billing options. This has resulted in a commendable saving of Rs. 1.48 crore annually for consumers in the Pune city. Notably, 33,738 consumers in the Baramati area, comprising districts like Solapur, Satara and Baramati mandal, are collectively saving Rs. 40.48 lakh annually through the ‘Go-Green’ scheme.

Similarly, in the Kolhapur circle, about 27,079 consumers are contributing to environmental conservation efforts while enjoying savings of Rs. 32.49 lakh annually. This includes consumers from Kolhapur and Sangli districts.

Mahavitaran’s ‘Go-Green’ initiative focuses on electronic billing by offering a Rs. 10 discount to participants, amounting to almost Rs.120 in annual savings per consumer. Through a streamlined computerised system, e-bills are promptly delivered to participants via e-mail, with additional bill information relayed through SMS notifications, facilitating swift payments.

Consumers have access to both their current electricity bill and the previous 11 months’ bills in their original format on the website. They can download these bills at their convenience or print them in their original colour, according to their needs. The Pune Regional Director Ankush Nale urges more electricity consumers to stop paper bills and embrace the ‘Go-Green’ scheme.
