Solar Power Usage in Agriculture and financial assistance -reg
I am ,Vijayakumar Ramaswamy from Coimbatore,Tamilnadu. I had installed a 5240 watts solar panel for running the 5hp borewell motor for pumping water for Agriculture purpose, since the grid power availability for Agriculture usage is merely 3hrs per day and that too is not guarenteed on all days. The cost of the Panel and the pump with accessories works out to nearly 6.5 lakhs . When I approached the Ministry of New and Renewable energy in New Delhi and asked for whether any Government subsidy is eligible , so that this will be helpful for the farming community to go far self sufficiency and not to depend on free power for Agriculture. I got a favourable reply stating 30% or Rs57000 per Kw which ever is lower on the total project cost . Also MNRE said the applications should come through their nodal agencies listed in their web site. Accordingly Since I hail from from Tamilnadu, the agency is TEDA at Chennai and I had forwarded the reply received from MNRE and requested to help in availing the subsidy. In turn I received a reply stating the subsidy is available for upto 5hp pump installation and the application should be sent to them and on approval by MNRE the pump can be installed and that too the equipment should be purchased from the list of approved supplier from TEDA. But to my surprise in the list provided to me none of the supplier had installed an Agriculture pump and made it successful. How can a farmer can install a solar pump and survive . The government announcement on Renewable energy and the subsidy entitlement are not that easy for any farmer to go in for solar power water pump and the Agriculture sector will never look up if such hassles are to be faced by farmers. Any remedy to this, any one suggest or take up with Government?
If such Such good advantage is available by Solar Pumping Syatem , Why Farmers are bot aware and why the dependacy on Electricity. There Should be a complete education System and should be affordable for our Farmers. I Believe this system should be adopted to all our Farmers. anilpaul
Solar Water pumps must be provided to farmers for agriculture irrigation purpose. It must be made compulsory for every Gram Panchayat to provide and collect relevant data and information of each farmers and try to reach each of them even tell them regarding the solar product benefit. All the Nationalised Bank and other financial institute, Societies, Trusts, and NGO's whomsoever must be provide them financial assistance & help with subside, so that self dependency among the farmer who will improve his life style which leads to growth and have a better social-economic status.

Government subsidy for solar power is a big joke , Mr.vijaykumar just ask a question to Teda representative how many solar pumps have been sanctioned by Teda in the past year then u will know the real colour . its more than a year they have sanctioned any project. May be you have to wait for a couple of years even to get the approval.
I required a solar power for 300 feet bore of agriculture land, what is the cost of it.From Arun(firstname.lastname@example.org)
I'm interesting in agri. To whom I can contact for getting this benefits? (email@example.com)
anonymous if there is one agency that is holding back the implementation of solar pumps in Tamilnadu it is TEDA. all they do is attend seminars and workshops. Promise everything and deliver nothing.
