Farmers troubled by the lack of electricity and the need for irrigation, have now found a solution for electricity, farmers have started using solar energy for regular uninterrupted power supply.

Farmer adopted method
Chironjilal, a farmer of Gram Panchayat Singouri of Bari subdivision of the district, applied to the Agriculture Department to set up a solar power plant under the Pradhan Mantri Kusum Yojana, a scheme being run by the state government. On this the farmer installed 7.5 horse power solar power pump. Farmer Ram Niwas told that there is less electricity in the village. Due to this, there was a problem of darkness in the houses as well as irrigation of the fields at night. Seeing the skyrocketing of diesel prices, getting electricity connection for fuel based tube wells is also a difficult task.
Irrigation of 4 to 5 bighas in a day, told Ram Niwas that there are fields at different places. The field needs irrigation. Keeping this in mind, electricity connection for tube well cannot be taken at one place. But 25 pipelines being given by the government were also given by the Agriculture Department. In a day, 4 to 5 bighas of crop are irrigated. Due to the availability of electricity at night during the winter season, there was a fear of getting cold and cold while irrigating at night. Now all the problems have been solved with the installation of solar plants.
