Meghalaya CM's solar mission to be rolled out within one month

SHILLONG, JUNE 6: The State Cabinet on Tuesday approved the Chief Minister’s Solar Mission.

Informing this after the meeting, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said that the idea and purpose of the mission is to have sustainable green energy and also be part of the energy mix.

“In this process, the government will subsidize different house units, institutional units and house units in urban and rural areas where we will be subsidizing a certain percentage where a technology based on the photovoltaic cell plus an inverter and a battery backup will be given which will be a hybrid system. This will allow some sort of stability in the power in the long run and we strongly feel that this will add to the energy mix. This will be a decentralized model,” he said.

Sangma informed that the government will be able to roll out the CM’s Solar Mission within the next one month.
