Updated: By: 13 Comments - Leave a Comment

The State government of Maharashtra is going to launch “Chief Minister Agricultural Solar Feeder Scheme” or “Mukhyamantri Saur Krishi Vahini Yojana” in the state. Under the scheme, the government will provide solar feeders to ensure 12-hour power supply for agro pumps across the state. The objective of the scheme is to provide power to farmers for at least 12 hours a day at cheaper rates.

According to the notification, the government has informed that the earlier distribution of portable solar pumps had not worked out properly because of insufficient response from the farmers of the state. Therefore, the government is now planning solar power generation through small plants.

Initially, the solar power will be distributed to only dedicated feeders. Currently, the government is implementing solar power generation projects in Solapur and Latur on Public Private Partnership basis.
