Agriculture with Solar Plan

solar-planSudarshan Reddy the former irrigation minister suggested that the 18.5 lakh agriculture pump sets go through solar system. The Telangana government Rs.11,000 crore.

Sudarshan Reddy explained in the plan which was sent to principal secretary of the energy department. He said,“If the power generated is sold to industries at a price of Rs 6 per unit, it will come around Rs 9,400 crore and the capacity of power stations to be installed will be roughly around 2,200 MW, it will be Rs 11,000 crore,and 2,200 MW installation of 1 MW.

But they have several doubts about the proposal. “Prima facie it appears very good but it is impractical. The water levels in many areas of Telangana are very deep i.e. beyond 300-350 ft deep and a solar pump can work only if the water is available at 150 ft depth”.

It has subsidy of 33 % and the consumer shall bear 11 %.And 56% will be borne by the discom.And Rs 1, 62,000 and total amount will go up to Rs 4, 90,000.So Mr. reddy’s calculation of Rs 2 lakh subsidy per set will not be possible. The officials had worked out on the plan. “ This was even implemented in some areas of Gadwal in Mahbubnagar district and the officials know well of the cost and other implication”, he said
