Solar Water Pump Sets

The gift to the farmers by the state government is Solar Water Pump Sets. With top priority, the state government wants the solar pump sets to be installed and commissioned on urgent basis as a plan to utilize power generated by power plants for other purposes.

The cost of 3 HP pump is priced at Rs 3.20 lakh and the 5 HP set Rs 4.90 lakh. The good news is that farmers will have to pay 11% only. The MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy) will extend 33 per cent subsidy. The Discom will provide another 56 per cent subsidy.

Farmers may submit their applications for buying solar pump sets either to Discoms or Irrigation Department.
