25,000 Villages to Benefit from Renewable Energy Solar Plan

Energy and power, especially electric power is the backbone to any meaningful and sustainable development effort in most countries of the world. It drives and fuels the aspirations of the masses and development conscious people to engage in meaningful economic activity. It automates, lights up homes and industries, education institutions, hospitals, highways and streets as well as giving due impetus to economic activity.

According to the latest proposals, plans and efforts by the government there’s feasibility to finance village solar micro grid that will provide electricity to more than 25,000 villages across 6 states of Rajasthan, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and Bihar.

Proposals and Feasibility Plans of the New Solar Power Storage Grid

For most of rural India is still under extreme darkness after nightfall with no provision for electrification. This puts India on low per capita availability of electricity even with significant progress in many scientific and knowledge spheres. The establishment of solar powered electric grid can achieve many benefits. Among the evident and feasible achievements of solar powered village micro grids are;

Some Interesting Points of the Proposed Village Micro Grids 
-Establish solar electricity village micro grids.
-Solar energy and renewable energy sources like wind energy to provide constant power supply.
-Timely completion of village micro grid project by December 2014. 
-Self-sufficient power supply in villages on micro grid.
-Monthly payment and billing for electricity to be as low as 100-200 rupees.
-More than 25,000 – 30,000 Indian villages to be made self sufficient in power supply.
-Off grid power can still be supplied to rural families at fraction costs
-Enhanced learning from success stories of Ghana and Germany.

Although per capita electricity availability in rural India is still very low the essence of any development work lies in making life and work of people easier and more enjoyable. With concerted efforts and plans bearing fruit these development goals are laudable.
