Nagpur ZP schools to achieve complete self-reliance in power

Nagpur Zilla Parishad (ZP) schools to achieve complete self-reliance in power in a couple of years. Work order to install rooftop solar panels in 564 Zilla Parishad (ZP) schools was issued last week, thus putting the district on track to get complete solar power infra. 

In the first phase, which was started before the pandemic rooftop solar panels were installed in 270 Zilla Parishad schools. While in the second phase, 564 schools will get rooftop solar plant, which is expected to be completed in six months. After this, in the third phase another 600 odd schools will be taken up.

The annual problem of schools facing power disconnection will be non-existent once the district achieves 100% solar installation, say sources.

As Maharashtra reels under power crisis with demand peaking every day, the shifting of schools to solar energy is a welcome step.

Funds for both the phases have come from government coffers, though initially some NGOs were rumoured to be interested in donating money. As per reports, the Rs4.5 crore for first phase came from District Planning Committee, while the second phase’s approximately Rs7.5 crore has come from the mining fund (royalty).
