Kerala to tap renewable energy to increase power production

With annual spending on power procurement from other states touching a massive Rs.6,000 crore, Kerala has decided to turn to renewable power generation to meet its energy demands internally. Confirming this, Kerala Minister for Electricity Kadakampally Surendran said, the state will generate 600 MW of power solar energy within the next three years. Kerala currently sources 65 per cent of its electricity from other states, besides which the Centre drafting rules for states to generate at least 85 per cent power internally, were catalysts for the step Surendran said. They have zeroed in on solar and wind as the best alternatives, and a 200 MW solar park is planned of which 30 MW will be ready in January 2017. Micro windmills, generating 300 W, have been installed on an experimental basis at the board´s headquarters in the state.
