A programme for the replacement of incandescent lamps with more energy efficient lamps mainly in the islands (which are not connected to the mainland electricity grid, and face significant problems because of high rates of increase of electricity consumption) is in progress. The programme is co-ordinated by the national electric utility (PPC) and provides fiscal incentives to customers for lamp replacements (i.e. gradual payment of the relevant investment cost through electricity bills). Approximately 120 000 bulbs were replaced in 2000-2001 and the resulting energy conservation from the application of this project is estimated to be 12 GWh.
