As of 6th December, a total of 160,000 compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) have been distributed in this CPA. While the initial couple of weeks saw off-take rates in the range of 5,000 CFLs per day (due to urban/semi urban population), in the last 5-6 days, the off-take rates are consistently in the region of 10,000 CFLs per day due to a more rural population.
