In line with the Prime Minister’s Energy Conservation plan, OGRA has made the installation of Conical Baffle in conventional gas geysers mandatory for domestic gas consumers.
In this regard, OGRA has approved gas utilities’ request to undertake mandatory installations of Conical Baffles and a public hearing in this respect was held at the OGRA office. The installation of Conical Baffles will result in 20 to 25% savings in gas bills and will as such help in mitigating the ongoing natural gas crisis in the country. SNGPL teams will shortly be initiating a door-to-door survey of gas consumers’ premises to ensure that conical baffles are installed in the geysers. SNGPL will install a conical baffle if any consumer is found to be using a gas geyser without a conical baffle.
Cost against the same will be recovered through a gas bill in 12 monthly instalments. Sui Northern Gas has requested the consumers to extend maximum cooperation for the early installation of Conical Baffles which will result in substantial gas savings for the consumers. This will lead to the conservation of Natural Gas in line with the vision of the Prime Minister’s plan for energy conservation.
