The Agency for Non-Conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT) along with the Government of India and Kerala initiated a program to harness the power of the sun to light up rural & sub-urban areas of Kerala.
The government was responsible for short-listing and empaneling key vendors, to install, commission and maintain the solar systems. Tata Power Solar, based on its credentials and proven ability, was selected and empaneled as one of vendor for the project.
With many vendors being registered with ANERT, the people had a choice, for purchasing their solar power systems. People overwhelmingly gave an order of 7700+ systems, to Tata Power Solar, being the largest order for a single vendor, based on their Trust in the Tata brand & the quality of systems and services provided by the company.
Savings for Families & the Kerala Government: The power generated through solar system suffice the energy needs of the families, hence less dependency & stress on the DISCOM, in turn helping the state reduce its load on the distribution system. (Considering 300 sunny days in a year)
Employment Generation: The installations have generated employment for the locals. The project also generated employment opportunities for the local people, who trained themselves for installation and equipment servicing.
Powering for the Generations: Most of the beneficiaries of this project are senior people, whose families may be settled outside the village or country. The solar system helps them enjoy a basic lifestyle with amenities like lights, fan and television at their disposal, along with access to communication devices, which help them stay connected with their families across the world.
