In this article, we will discuss KUSUM Scheme. So, let’s get started.
It seeks to provide:
- Installation of grid-connected solar power plants each of capacity up to 2 MW in the rural areas.
- Installation of standalone off-grid solar water pumps to fulfil irrigation needs of farmers not connected to the grid.
- Solarization of existing grid-connected agriculture pumps to make farmers independent of grid supply and also enable them to sell surplus solar power generated to DISCOMs and get an extra income.
- Solarization of tube-wells and lift irrigation projects of the Government sector.
