As the country is going through a transformation from the conventional source of energy to clean energy there are various dubious or less durable products related to the industry in the market.

Highlighting the issue solar power experts and specialists have warned institutions, industries and commercial organizations, who want to shift from the conventional source of energy to clean energy, to be careful while buying the cheap products that are available in the market.

Addressing participants at an awareness programme on Alternate Energy organised jointly by Entrepreneurship Development And Innovation Institute (EDII), Chennai and Tiruchi District Tiny and Small Scale Industries’ Association, Arun Rebero, Director, Contura Solar (India) Pvt. Ltd., and Harish Amirthakasi, Director – Commercial Management, Baby Engineering Pvt. Ltd., exhorted them to refrain from viewing solar energy generation through the prism of price-sensitivity, and to opt for quality products for sustained generation without any system failure.

Infusing quality consciousness is vital at this juncture. Robust operation of German solar generation system with remote monitoring installed in a hospital in Pudukottai district was explained to the participants. The participants were encouraged to avail the utility of the concessions offered by Tamil Nadu Energy Development Agency (TEDA) to commercial and non-commercial organizations, Mr. Arun Rebero said.

Mr. Harish Amirthakasi explained the utility of installing solar trees. Solar power tree developed by CSIR-Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-CMERI), a constituent laboratory of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), was launched during 2016 by Union Minister for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences Harsh Vardhan.

According to the organizers, the awareness programme was launched to explore the opportunity that needs to be tapped in the backdrop of the Central Government fixing solar power target to one lakh MW by 2022.
