Telangana: CM KCR to inaugurate solar power plant in Suryapet tomorrow
Hyderabad: As part of the construction of pollution-free Telangana, Chief Minister KCR has already undertaken the Haritaharam program and made the state a green Telangana, and the Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation is working with the same spirit, said Mr. Satish Reddy, Chairman of TSREDCO. As part of this, increasing awareness is being given to the use of solar electricity in the newly constructed collectorate buildings in the state.
With the installation of solar plant, the electricity bill will be reduced by almost 80 percent. Due to the use of solar electricity, the burden of charges will be reduced by about 23 lakh rupees annually. According to this calculation, the cost of constructing a 200 kilowatt solar power project will be paid off in six and a half years.
Also, a 100 kilowatt solar roof top power plant has been set up in the integrated district office complex (collector complex) of Suryapet district. Collectorate complex and solar plant will be inaugurated by Honorable Chief Minister KCR on 20th of this month. Through this, 1 lakh 44 thousand units of electricity are generated annually. Through this, 11 lakh 23 thousand 200 rupees will be saved annually. The cost of construction will be paid off in five and a half years.
Also, solar plant with a capacity of 100 kilowatts in Rangareddy district collectorate complex and another plant with a capacity of 100 kilowatts in Kamareddy collectorate complex is in progress. Telangana Renewable Energy Development Corporation will take care of the management of these solar plants for 20 years. Any problems in the plant will be rectified by the company without any inconvenience to the customers.
Therefore, Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation Chairman Y. Satish Reddy requested the authorities to take initiative to set up solar power plants on other collectorate complexes and government offices in the state.
He added that this would reduce the pollution caused by conventional power generation and also reduce the burden of electricity bills. He said that the cost of setting up the plant will be recovered in maximum five and a half to six and a half years. He suggested that government offices should think towards solar power as it is not a financial burden either. He asked to come together in environmental protection..
