CleanMax Solar has donated a solar plant of 20 kWp to the Gram Panchayath of Komaravolu village in Andhra Pradesh. The plant was recently inaugurated by Nara Bhuvaneswari, wife of Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, N Chandrababu Naidu; Tejus AV, Head – Solar Farms for CleanMax Solar, was also present on this occasion.
The village of Komaravolu was adopted by Nara Bhuvaneswari under the “Smart Village Smart Ward programme” to develop it into a model village. With this installation, the village of Komaravolu has taken a step closer towards energy security and environment preservation by adopting solar energy. The Grampanchayath is estimated to save up to ₹58,000 per year as this solar plant will approximately generate 29,000 kWh electricity units per annum for next 25 years. The project will meet 36 per cent of the gram panchayath’s electricity requirement through solar power.
Andrew Hines, Co-founder, CleanMax Solar, said, “The ‘Smart Village Smart Ward programme’ by the Andhra Pradesh government is a laudable initiative to promote solar electricity in villages. While much attention is paid to large-scale solar projects, village-level projects like this one will help to improve energy availability in villages, where this problem is more acute.”
