From January 16, the program for exchanging incandescent lamps for energy-saving LED lamps will be launched in test mode. The government adopted a resolution on an experimental project for efficient electricity consumption, according to which Ukrainians will have the opportunity to exchange 5 ordinary lamps for LED ones. The program is implemented by the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Digital Transformation, “Ukrposhta” JSC with the support of the European Union.

This was reported in the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

There will be two ways to do this. The first is to come to the Ukrposhta office with a passport, identification code, and ordinary lamps. If there are LED lamps in the office, then they can be exchanged.

The second method is more reliable and is implemented through Diia application. With the update of the Diia application, a function to order LED lamps in the specified office will appear, where after confirmation, it will be possible to make an exchange guaranteed within 5 working days.

As Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said, at the first stage of the beta test of the program, it is planned to exchange 500 thousand lamps. It will be implemented in six regions of Ukraine, after which it is planned to launch the program throughout Ukraine in two weeks.

Therefore, if necessary, you should follow the updates of Diia and participate in the project for efficient consumption of electricity. The beta test will start this week.
