(a) to (d): Ministry of textiles and Ministry of Power have joined hands under the new initiative SAATHI (Sustainable and Accelerated Adoption of efficient Textile technologies to Help small Industries) with a view to sustain and accelerate the adoption of energy efficient textile technologies in powerloom sector and the cost savings due to the use of such technology. Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a public Sector entity under the administrative control of Ministry of Power, will replace old inefficient electric motors with energy efficient IE3 motors which is likely to result in energy and cost saving to the tune of 10-15% in the first phase. In the second phase it will replace energy efficient powerlooms and rapier kits in bulk and provide them to small and medium powerloom units. The use of these efficient equipments would result in energy savings and cost savings to the unit owners at no upfront cost. Powerloom clusters at Ichalkaranji, Bhiwandi, Erode, Surat, Bhilwara and Panipat have been identified for pilot study.
