Tata Power's nationwide energy conservation programme, Club Enerji, has been persistently sensitising citizens about the dire need to protect the planet and preserve our natural resources. Club Enerji, through its Waste Management Module aims to educate students about the repercussions of waste dumping on the environment and its impact on the ecosystem. Continuing with the momentum, the mini Club Enerji teams from Mumbai's St. Lawrence School and Dr. S Radhakrishnan Vidyalay today organised a cleanliness drive at Aksa Beach, Malad in Mumbai.

More than 100 students participated in this drive by cleaning the beach and educating citizens on the hazards of waste dumping on the marine ecosystem.

Speaking on this initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power, said, "We are delighted to receive such an overwhelming response from the students for the Waste Management Module. The actions and contributions of the Energy Brigade has come a long way in making a positive impact on the environment. We would like to thank the students and management of Dr. S Radhakrishnan Vidyalay and St. Lawrence School for participating and extending their support to this initiative."

The Company has received enthusiastic response from the participating schools. The Club Enerji movement has successfully achieved a significant milestone of saving 11.2 million units of electricity by sensitising more than 7 million people across 11 locations including Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune, Bangalore, Lonavala, Maithon, Belgaum, Jamshedpur and Ranchi since its inception.

Club Enerji recently launched the Waste Management module which educates the students about the hazards of waste dumping on the environment and its impact on the ecosystem. The module aims to provide a platform to students to share and expand their understanding, thereby, bringing about a chain-reaction that can significantly reduce generation of waste and increase efficient waste management in the country.

The Club Enerji Programme has reached out to over 400 schools in India and has sensitised over 7 million citizens, who in turn have helped save more than 11.2 MUs of electricity till date. This is equivalent to saving 11,200 tonnes of CO2, and is enough to light up over 5,200 houses for a year. The Club also has 1,150 self-sustaining Mini Club Enerjis and has won several national and international accolades.
