Solar Power Movement In Hyderabad

The vision of CM KCR about shaping up a ‘Bangaru Telangana’ sounds rosy but in reality it might be taking many years. The fundamental challenge for him is to create proper infrastructure for growth of the new state. And thanks to the forced bifurcation, the capital city of Hyderabad has become the worst suffering victim.
The city has been experiencing some heavy power cuts. Currently it is 4 hours officially and experts say down the line it is going to increase. In summers it is expected to touch at least 10 hours if measures are not taken. But instead of relying on the government, many are looking for their own remedies.

Reports say that at many places solar power is being used. For that matter, even film star Nagarjuna’s house is entirely run on solar power. Many schools and educational institutions are going for solar paneling. If 8k is monthly bill through regular electrity, the solar panel installation is 6 lakhs so they are considering it as 6 years bill one-time payment.  In small establishments, 1 hour of diesel generator costs 1600 rupees so one can imagine how the corporate would incur cost when there is a power cut. That way, solar power is becoming the largest movement in Hyderabad.
