Proposal to tackle energy crisis the StateExperts have proposed solar based energy solutions to tackle the energy crisis in Kerala. A high level expert panel appointed by the Electricity Board is conducting discussions over this proposals.
Proposal by one of the experts include standalone roof top solar systems, grid- connected systems, large solar farms on waste-land and canal tops and also floating mounted systems in reservoirs and backwaters, among other places.
The proposal also recommends starting experimental facilities in Peppara and Aruvikkara dams and also environment impact studies before going for larger systems in other locations. Sufficient subsidy is also suggested to attract the public to change over to the solar system, initially, since the installation costs are on the higher side.
