Solar Photovoltaic Energy Programme:

(Rs.15.00 lacs)

Solar Photovoltaic technology converts the solar energy into electricity with the use of
solar photovoltaic modules. This is an upcoming technology and has a lot of potential in our
country. Presently, this technology is being promoted for street lights, in-door lights or portable
lighting system i.e. Solar Lanterns. This technology has added advantages that this is pollution
free, renewable source of energy and modular in nature, i.e. the capacity of the system can be
increased or decreased as per requirement and installation is not time consuming. Since,
power break down and erratic power supply is a common features in the country. This can be
reliable alternate source of energy systems. MNES, GOI has been implementing country wide
programme for demonstration and utilization of solar photovoltaic system with emphasis on
application for rural areas. The most common system under this programme are stand alone
street lighting systems, domestic lights, solar lanterns, community TVS and lighting systems
for community as well as public use. Small village level, power plants would also be installed
under other low voltage energy requirements.
This is going to be a major renewable energy source in the future but Mass awareness is
required to be created for the same in the potential rural and urban areas. In order to make this
technology popular, it was proposed to continue this scheme during 11th five year plan 20072012. During the financial year 2011-2012 sum of Rs.15.00 lacs is proposed to be provided in
the Annual Plan for taking up the various activities under this scheme.
c.

Solar Green House in U.T. Chandigarh:

(Rs.2.00 lacs)

The Solar Green House is a new concept for providing a controlled environment for
development of off season vegetables/ flowers etc. This part of the country suffers from
extreme weather condition. With a view to tide over the vagaries of extreme climatic
conditions during winter and summer, it has been decided that the people should be encouraged
to adopt solar green house technology in a big way. Also keeping in mind the land constraint
of Chandigarh (Union Territory) this technology can prove more beneficial for raising high

value Horticulture crops, off-season vegetables and as also multiplication of nursery


plantations, which is otherwise difficult. This technology can also help the farmers in raising
export oriented cut flowers etc. thereby increase their standard of living.
Therefore, a provision of Rs.2.00 Lac is made in Annual Plan 2011-2012.
d.

Solar Photovoltaic Power Plants:

(Rs.5.00 lacs)

The Union Territory of Chandigarh does not have its own power generating unit of any
kind. It derives the power from the neighboring states and distributes to the consumers. It has to
rely solely on the power generation capacity of these States and in case of any eventuality in
these Stations the residents of the Chandigarh have to also suffer.
One SPV Power Plant Project has been funded on subsidy by the Ministry of Non
Conventional Energy Sources, Govt. of India up to 2/3rd cost of the plant.
The Chandigarh Administration had proposed the project on the above technology to
the Ministry of Non Conventional Energy Sources, Govt. of India and sanction has been
accorded for setting up of 25 KWP Plant at U.T., Secretariat Building Sector-9, Chandigarh.
It is proposed to make a token provision of Rs.5.00 Lac in the Annual Plan of 2011-2012.
e.

Setting up of State Level Energy Park:

(Rs.1.00 lac)

It is a new scheme. The state Level Energy Park has been proposed to be set up in the
Botanical Garden at Sarangpur, U.T. Chandigarh. The State Level Energy Park will have
different demonstration units based and run by Solar Energy objects on theme Conservation of
Energy. Solar run Video Games, Cars, Train, SPV Street Lights, Swimming Pool, Energy Wind
Generation Operation Storage of Energy etc.
The land measuring 3.00 acres and other facilities will be provided by the Department of
Forests, Chandigarh Administration. The Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources, Govt.
of India has provided a financial assistance up to Rs.1.00 Crores to meet the procurement cost of
different solar devices to be installed and commissioned in the Energy Park.
Thus, a token provision of Rs. 1.00 Lac for the infrastructure development is proposed to
be made in the F.Y. 2011-2012.
f.

Solar City Plan:

(Rs.1611.00 lacs)

Chandigarh City has been identified to be developed as Models Solar City. As


per scheme/guidelines of the Govt. of India, financial support up to the maximum of Rs.9.50
Crore will be available for developing Chandigarh as Model Solar City based on the Master Plan
prepared under the scheme.

In order to implement the programme of development of Chandigarh as Model


Solar City, a sum of Rs.1611.00 lacs has been proposed during Annual Plan 2011-12 for this
purpose.
NCSE.2
a.

Promotion of Bio-gas & other sources including BOV:


(Rs.6.00 lacs)
Battery Operated Vehicles:
(Rs.2.00 lacs)

There is a growing concern about environment degradation due to increased number


of vehicles that are plying on the Chandigarh roads emitting obnoxious gases polluting
the atmosphere with the increase of population and traffic. The number of vehicles that are
coming on the road is multiplying day by day and hence the pollution level increasing. Since,
emphasis is being laid on the pollution free environment, this can only be achieved through
environmental friendly machines. Therefore, there emerges a need to contain the level of
pollution and introduce battery operated vehicles in the city on experimental basis so that the
city does not develop into the polluted city like Delhi.
The Deptt. has purchased one battery driven non polluting car for demonstration
purpose with a subsidy of Rs.0.75 lacs from MNES,GOI and is expected that as per initial
response the different deptt. of Chandigarh Admn. and general public will buy this car.
In order to Encourage the use of Battery Operated Vehicles for general public
(individuals) subsidy would be provided for promotion of these systems, also further
encouraged by (i) no Road Tax and (ii) no Registration charges.
Therefore, a provision of Rs.2.00 Lac is proposed during Annual Plan 2011-2012.
b.

Administrative Set- up:

(Rs.2.00 lacs)

In view of the recommendations of the third conference of the Chief Ministers and
Ministers of states for Non Conventional Sources of Energy for setting up of separate entity

Promotion of the Non Conventional Energy Sources:


(Rs.2.00 lacs)

Biogas generation plant from waste Vegetable/fruit


Chandigarh has a big grain/ vegetable market and number of similar markets exist in
other parts of the city which produce a lot of vegetable/ fruit waste. This vegetable/ fruit waste
can be converted into bio-gas by processing the waste in a specially designed digester and
besides this, also produce rich manure. Thus the city waste can be put to better use and save the
city from nauseating, irritating and foul smell. Therefore, it is proposed that a project can be
prepared after surveying these markets, quantity of waste available on daily basis, design
and capacity of the plant and use of the gas etc. Such a project can be funded by MNES, Govt.
of India.
Sale and promotion of Solar Cooker.
Solar cooker is a box type device absorbing the radiant thermal heat of the sun. The
device cooks the food, without any conventional fossil fuels. Moreover it preserves the
vitamins and flavor of the raw food, substantially. Apart from all these advantages of solar
energy cooking it has great service to women that they do not have to attend to the
cooking continuously. Thus the time so saved can be conveniently utilized for other domestic
chores. This scheme can be of great benefits and needs to be promoted by extending the
financial year.

Solar lighting in forest area.


The Union Territory of Chandigarh on its North-East is surrounded by a thick reserved
forest. This area is inhabited by the families of Forest Department employees. It is estimated
that about 200 facilities live in this forest area. The strange aspect is that area being close to the
city has not been electrified. It is said that it costs heavily for providing the conventional
electricity. The families have thus been living on either wood or kerosene for providing
lighting during night. They cannot move about in the area as there is no light during
evening/night. They have no means to entertainment and find it difficult to go to market during
night or hospital even if emergency so required. Even the nearest kucha path which is about 4.0
Kms. has no light.
The SPV Street Lighting Systems provided previously in Forest Area of U.T.,
Chandigarh require maintenance. The Forest Deptt., Chandigarh Administration was requested
to maintain the existing Solar Systems installed and commissioned in the Forest Area by this
Deptt.
A Provision of Rs.2.00 lac is proposed to be made in the Annual Plan 2011-2012 for
implementation of this scheme.
