0 Comment

Tamil Nadu has launched India’s largest solar rooftop programme for providing Solar powered Green Houses (3 lakh houses by 2015- 16) under Chief Minister’s Solar powered Green Houses scheme, with provision of solar powered Home lighting systems with battery backup in 60,000 Green Houses in 2011-12. Another 60000 green houses will be provided with solar lights during 2012-13 at a cost of Rs.180 crores. This scheme is also first of its kind in India with grid back up. In order to support this move  IITMadras is to develop and operate systems which would provide grid backup to houses that run on  solar power. This system would ensure that the houses receive electricity on days with poor sunlight (for instance during monsoon seasons) when the solar panels would not generate enough electricity
