Power Watch India - - DISPATCHES NATIONAL -

Power back up so­lu­tions provider, SuKam Power Sys­tems claims to have till date suc­cess­fully in­stalled so­lar power sys­tems in over 10000 houses in 7 districts of Tamil Nadu un­der the ‘Chief Min­is­ter’s So­lar Pow­ered Green­House Scheme’ launched by TEDA (Tamil Nadu En­ergy De­vel­op­ment Agency). The com­pany shall be mak­ing 2500 ad­di­tion­al­so­lar in­stal­la­tions un­der this phase of the project by the end of May 2014. Govern­ment of Tamil Nadu has launched the ‘So­lar Pow­ered Green House Scheme’ un­der which, 3 lakh houses will be con­structed with so­lar pow­ered light­ing sys­tems over a pe­riod of 5 years from 2011-12 to 2015-16 for the ben­e­fit of poor in ru­ral ar­eas. Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Ashish Sethi, VP-So­lar projects, Su-Kam said, “We are pleased to work for TEDA and provide­them a cus­tom­ized so­lu­tion to har­ness so­lar en­ergy to meet ba­sic power re­quire­ments in ru­ral homes. In ad­di­tion to the above, TEDA has as­signed us the project of in­stalling so­lar power sys­tems in 27700 additional houses in the next phase of this project.”

“With the ever in­creas­ing cost of non-re­new­able en­ergy, so­lar power has be­come the most cost ef­fec­tive mode for gen­er­at­ing elec­tric­ity in the present times. There­fore, as part of our so­lar plan this fis­cal, we are bullish in mak­ing so­lar power avail­able to both the ur­ban and ru­ral seg­ments for res­i­den­tial as well as commercial ap­pli­ca­tions in Tamil Nadu. We are work­ing to spread aware­ness about the fea­si­bil­ity of so­lar in­stal­la­tions and make our so­lar pres­ence felt in homes, of­fices, in­sti­tu­tions like schools, col­leges, govern­ment build­ings, hos­pi­tals, commercial es­tab­lish­ments etc. in the state,” he added. The res­i­dents of over 10000 house­holds in Tamil Nadu who are ben­e­fit­ing from the so­lar in­stal­la­tion at their houses in ru­ral ar­eas have ex­pressed their re­lief and hap­pi­ness.
