Greater Cochin Development Authority plans to utilise solar power

According to reports, with the state reeling under acute power shortage, the Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) has taken the step to utilize the non-conventional energy source of solar power which will help it in saving a considerable amount on electricity bills. The Authority plans to completely shift to solar energy within a short time.

“As the power crisis is looming, we should look at the scope for optimal exploitation of non-conventional energy resources.  That is why we’ve decided to switch to solar power,” said GCDA chairman N Venugopal.

The Authority has proposed a time-bound implementation plan for the project. The GCDA has recently installed more than 20 solar lamps in its garden and lawn and found it feasible. The total expense for lighting the garden and lawn was Rs. 80,000 of which 50 per cent was government subsidy.
