MYSURU: Highlighting the multi-pronged advantages of adopting solar power, mayor Pushpalatha Jagganath on Thursday stated that it eased the financial burden on a family. “Solar projects are the need of the hour,” stated Pushpalatha.
The mayor, who inaugurated a workshop on ‘Proper utilisation of LPG, saving electricity and use of solar power within the domestic sector’ organised by the Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd (KREDL) for the participants of Ladies Association of Mysuru on the Institute of Engineers, called on ladies to tap the enormous potential of solar power. “Recently, price of LPG has skyrocketed, and if the cylinders will also be replaced with solar apparatus, it's going to lead to family bills falling enormously. Similarly, households can transfer to solar heaters and solar lighting fixtures at house. What we need as of late is to advertise solar projects within the country zealously. Using solar energy may be extra eco-friendly,” stated Pushpalatha.

At the workshop, the participants had been trained on the many advantages of solar power and the want to adopt safety measures while working with LPG cylinders.

KREDL venture engineer DK Dinesh Kumar stated that switching to renewable energy was the most feasible strategy to the longstanding downside of electricity scarcity in Karnataka. “Use of solar power will avert safety hazards that end result from use of standard electric units. More other folks must adopt unconventional resources of power, which can be also extra eco-friendly,” Kumar stated.

Expressing grave issues over the exploitation of exhaustible sources of energy such as coal and herbal gasoline for power technology, Kumar added, “The danger of these sources being exhausted is looming large. Moreover, use of coal and petroleum also lead to pollution ranges emerging. However, just about 21% of the country’s power wishes will also be met by renewable resources of energy. By the top of 2022, the central executive is aiming to generate 1.75 lakh Mega Watts of electricity the use of renewable energy resources.”

Kumar emphasised the function institutions in each and every state performed in helping the country do so target. “Mysuru City Corporation and all zonal offices were supplied with solar crops. Women must also play a key function in helping the country tap solar potential by installing Sun-powered crops in their respective families,” he added.
