Wind energy to light up Maoist-hit Bastar
Jagdalpur (Chhattisgarh): If the efforts of the Chhattisgarh government produce results, the day is not far when wind energy would illuminate houses in the Maoist insurgency-hit Bastar district, an official said Thursday.
The Chhattisgarh State Renewable Energy Development Agency (CREDA) has identified two villages in Bastar-Raikot in Tokapal block and Burgum in Bastanar block -- suitable for setting up a wind energy power plant, a CREDA official said.
The official added that the agency`s engineers have already surveyed the area in this connection, and that preparations were on to set up a wind mill farm on an experimental basis.
After studying the viability of the project, the department would establish a wind energy power plant in the area.
CREDA`s earlier attempt to establish a similar plant in Kondagaon district of the state had met with failure.
Executive engineer of the agency R.K. Rai said the wind mill farm is expected to reduce the power woes of the people in Raikot and Burgum villages, as well as those living in nearby areas.
