Under Pradhan Mantri Kusum Yojana, Gautam Solar installed 1,500 solar pumps in Haryana

New Delhi, Dec 14 (PTI) Solar power equipment maker Gautam Solar has installed 1500 solar pumps at various places in Haryana. These solar pumps will reduce the dependence of farmers on diesel-powered generators. The company said this on Tuesday.

Gautam Solar said, “Under the Pradhan Mantri Kusum Yojana, 1500 solar pumps of 7.5 HP (horse power) and 10 HP capacity have been installed at different places in Haryana.”

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy had launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha and Utthan Maha Abhiyan (Pradhan Mantri Kusum) scheme in 2019. Under this, there is a provision to install solar pumps and other grid-connected solar power plants for the farmers.

Under this scheme, farmers get exemption for installing solar pumps. Under the Pradhan Mantri Kusum Yojana, farmers get massive government assistance for installing solar pumps. According to the company, after the subsidy, the farmer has to pay only about a quarter for the solar pump.
