The first ever solar power captive plant having 790kwp capacity has been installed in the premises of National Cancer Institute (NCI), Hingna Road in Maharashtra.

The solar plant was inaugurated by the Energy Minister Chandrashekshar Bawankule.

It has been installed on the rooftop of NCI and is expected to generate 3,500 unit electricity per day.

The Minister appreciated the NCI team and said, “Installation of the solar power plant in the campus is a great idea. It is laudable that the parking space rooftop is being utilized in a systematic way.”

“Most of the business and medical projects in Vidarbha are still not working in full swing because the required energy capital is expensive. We need to take major initiatives and focus more on green energy,” Bawankule added.

The Minister assured the cancer institute to install most advanced power plant set-up of 33kW in the institute’s premises and that would be operational by May 2019.

Ashok Mokha who was guest of honour and chairperson of the function said, “NCI is one of the best medical cancer facilities in the country and now complimented with its own energy power plant, NCI has set an example of ideal green medical institute.”

Besides, State Home Minister, Ranjit Patil said, “This is high time that not just organizations from different backgrounds but people on individual level should take a step ahead in promoting green energy. It not reduces station on the resources but also helps to reduce carbon foot print.”
