Odisha, chief minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday launched grid connected roof top solar projects.
Under the programme, the consumers can instill small solar plants on their rooftops and consume the generated solar power during day time. Excess power (if any) can be exported to the grid through their service cable.
“Grid connected roof top solar systems are best options for adding renewable solar capacity through people’s participation. These decentralized systems also have the ability to strengthen the grid. It will reduce power loses and benefit the public,” said chief minister Naveen Patnaik after launching the system.
The chief minister also launched a web platform www.rtsodisha.gov.in on the occasion that will facilitate different stake holders such as Odisha Renewable Energy Development Agency, distribution companies and vendors.
