For many years, consumer groups in Maharashtra and MERC had been insisting that MSEDCL should undertake DSM programs.  In response, MSEDCL launched a CFL pilot project around November 2005 that lasted until about June 2006.  Subsequently, Prayas undertook a review of the project.  This report gives the results of the review.  Prayas’s review consisted of four parts:  (1) impact evaluation to estimate the energy savings and reduction in peak demand; (2) analysis of issues related to the quality of CFLs such as failure rates, power factor, harmonics, and their impact on the power system;  (3) review of the tracking and monitoring system for the project; and (4) process evaluation to see if the program design, procedures, and systems could be improved to increase the impact of the program.
