ANERT to set up 2-MW solar power plant at PalakkadThe Agency for Non-conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT) expects to start work on a 2-MW solar power plant at Kuzhalmannam in Palakkad
To be executed with financial assistance from the Union government, the programme would generate a total of 10 MW and produce about 1 crore units of power every year to bridge the demand-supply gap in the State’s power sector.
Dr. Jayaraju said the off-grid solar photovoltaic (SPV) plants would obviate the problem of transmission loss and ensure round-the-clock uninterrupted power supply, while saving 100 to 120 units of electricity every month. Each unit with solar panels, battery bank, and inverter would cost Rs.1.77 lakh to Rs.2.05 lakh. Beneficiaries would be eligible for a combined State-Central subsidy of Rs.92,262.
