Cesc to use solar power to electrify tribal hamlets in Old Mysuru Region

Mysuru: The darkness that many tribal hamlets continue to stay in, despite quite a lot of programmes being initiated to deal with the issue, has alerted Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (Cesc) to the gravity of the problem. The agency has stumble on the speculation of the usage of solar energy to remove darkness from these tribal settlements.

Research conducted by the Karnataka State Tribal Research Institute expose that, in the Old Mysuru Region, the population of tribals is best in Mysuru – three.34 lakh — adopted by 1.2 lakh in Chamarajanagar, 58,054 in Kodagu, 32,329 in Hassan and 22,402 in Mandya. Although many of the tribals have succeeded in transferring out of the wasteland, and are right now residing in villages and towns, a small segment continue to reside in the forests, and lack of elementary infrastructure, and facilities, only adds to the demanding situations of residing in the wild.

Illuminating hamlets deep in the forests the usage of wires, and different typical modes of electrical energy is an uphill task for the authorities, which explains their choice to opt for solar energy to electrify these settlements. After a survey of the settlements, Cesc has already managed to supply electrical energy to probably the most hamlets in the hilly regions of Mysuru.

Cesc’s chief monetary officer A Shivanna mentioned that electrifying tribal settlements in the undulating panorama used to be financially unviable. “It will cost us Rs four lakh to supply energy to at least one house if we do it the usage of typical methods,” mentioned Shivanna.


Cesc managed to collate information accrued from gram panchayats and segment officials about hamlets which can be with out electrical energy in 5 districts that the agency supplies energy to, and drew up a plan to deal with the issue. The electrical energy generated by one sun battery will supply enough energy for two bulbs, a fan and charging a mobile phone.


Cesc managing director HN Gopalakrishna mentioned that 1,765 hamlets and tandas in the hilly regions of the 5 districts had already been electrified. “We will whole the rest work by the top of March,” he advised TOI.


Vijay Kumar, director of Budakattu Krishikara Sangha, a tribal organisation in Heggada Devana Kote, advised IdealNews that, while haadis (hamlets) mendacity outside the woodland were electrified, the ones nestled inside remained in the dead of night. “The other folks in these hamlets continue to depend on oil lamps. Cesc must electrify these hamlets the usage of solar energy, and put an finish to this problem,” Kumar mentioned.
