The event witnessed the distribution of a substantial number of ‘Surya Nutan’ devices to enthusiastic beneficiaries in Kandipura Village. The technology, developed by IndianOil, combines solar PV with thermal storage and auxiliary support from grid power, ensuring 24×7 cooking solutions. The occasion was graced by several eminent personalities of the region, including Kalu Singh Thakur, MLA Dharampuri constituency.

‘Surya Nutan’ is a stationary, rechargeable, and always kitchen-connected indoor cooking solution capable of cooking a variety of Indian food items involving boiling, steaming, frying, and “roti” making. Suitable for a family of 4 people, ‘Surya Nutan’ offers modularity to fulfill cooking requirements, stores solar energy to overcome intermittent, and is safe in operation with minimal maintenance.

Key Highlights:
