The Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is charting out an action plan for extensively exploiting the solar energy potential to tackle the power crisis gripping the State. Official sources said that a high-level expert panel appointed by the board is holding weekly meetings to scrutinise the successful models set up in different parts of the country for preparing a detailed project report by mid-November. As a proven technology, it has been envisaged to adopt the solar technology at present and then move on to other sources like wind and tidal power in due course.
Noted exponent of the people's science movement R.V.G. Menon had made a detailed presentation at a high-level meeting conducted by the board on October 11 on the sustainable energy scenario for the State and what the board should do to tide over the crisis.
