BHUBANESWAR: Central Electricity Supply Utility (CESU) has appealed all puja committees under its areas of operation to apply for temporary connection to use safe and reliable electricity during the festive season, beginning Durga Puja.

“We have requested the puja committees to contact their local electrical section office or sub-division office for temporary electricity connection to puja pandals,” said CESU spokesperson GB Sahu.

The utility having power distribution business in eight districts has further requested puja committee functionaries to use energy saving lights for decorative purposes to reduce power consumption during the period. This will help reduction of carbon emission, he said.
