Roof Top Solar Energy System inaugurated by DDG (CS) at ICAR-IISR, Lucknow

A Grid Connected Roof Top Solar Energy System installed at ICAR-Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research, Lucknow was inaugurated by Dr. J.S. Sandhu, Deputy Director General (Crop Science), ICAR, New Delhi on June 24, 2017. With inauguration of solar energy system, the ICAR-IISR is now one step ahead in green energy production and conservation of conventional electric energy. The Institute has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with M/s Genus Innovations Limited, Jaipur for erection, testing and commissioning of grid connected Roof Top Solar Power System. The firm will also be responsible for its operation and maintenance for the next 25 years. As per the MoU, the firm has already installed solar panels on the roof tops of the Institute buildings with total power generation capacity of 250 KW and started power generation. During the period May, 2017, a total of about 30000 kwh power was generated by the Roof Top Solar Power System at the Institute.

The Institute purchases electricity from Power Company at average cost of Rs. 12/- per kwh, while the average cost of power purchased from roof top solar power system comes to Rs. 6/- per kwh. Thus, with installation of this roof top solar power system at the Institute, the ICAR-IISR, Lucknow will save the power bill to the tune of Rs. 2 lakh per month, amounting to Rs. 24 lakh per annum.

Dr. Sandhu also reviewed the research work of Institute and visited technology park, experimental plots and laboratories of the Institute. During visit Dr. Sandhu discussed in detail about the technology being offered to the cane growers by the institute.

At the occasion DDG also addressed the scientists and staff of the institute in the auditorium. Director, Dr. A.D. Pathak gave a presentation on the activities and recent achievements of ICAR-IISR to the DDG.
