Solar Energy to power 4,000 households in Jharkhand

Solar_EnergyJharkhand is all set to be electrified with a renewable source of energy with Chief Minister Raghubar Das announcing the use of solar energy to power 4000 households.

Das, who was inaugurating 132/33 KV grid sub-station at Tamad, said that this upcoming facility will solve the electricity problem in Bhagawan Birsa Munda village. The grid is also expected to take care of low voltage in Tamad and and would be connected to the Chandil Grid as well.

Referring to the enormous potential of coal-powered energy of Jharkhand, Das said that every house-hold in the state would be electrified by 2019. He also appealed to the youth to take up Food Processing Plants through public-private partnership in the wake of the government adopting a policy in this sector. This will pave way for the growth of factories, he noted.

The closed-down cold storages would also be re-opened along with imparting training to dropout students, thus providing them with self-employment options.

Stating that 26,000 women self-help groups were connected to JHARCRAFT (Jharkhand Silk Textile & Handicraft Development Corporation), Das said the government would purchase blankets, sheets, towels and school uniform from it, which would aid them in increasing their income.

The Chief Minister also highlighted the need to have monthly Gram Sabha meetings from the perspective of village development.
