75 kw rooftop solar power plant at Vikas Bhawan
Making an ecofreindly move to utilise solar power, UP New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) took the initiative to install the first 75 kW rooftop solar power plant at Vikas Bhawan. The plant has been made functional but it will be used after the installation of meters within two days. Project officer, UPNEDA, Varanasi, RV Singh said,´We have been taking small steps to ensure that most of the buildings function on solar power and as a part of it, a 75 kW rooftop grid-interactive solar power plant has been installed atop Vikas Bhawan building. The plant would produce 1 lakh unit electricity per year and help in saving over Rs.8 lakh as power bill.´Another 100 kW solar power plant would be installed at the commissioner´s office building soon.
