Solar energy is Assam’s answer to the power crisis
A 40-kilowatt solar power plant was recently inaugurated in Assam's Jorhat city with an aim to utilize the energy resources. In 2015, the then government of Assam sanctioned 50 lakh rupees to encourage solar power generation in the area. The plant at Don Bosco Higher Secondary School will provide sufficient electricity to the school and neighbouring area. The North-east region produces surplus power as compare to the demand. However, the surplus energy will be distributed to other parts of the country.
