The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evem Utthan Mahabhiyan (PM KUSUM) Scheme for farmers for installation of solar pumps and grid connected solar and other renewable power plants in the country.
OVERVIEW OF PM KUSUM SCHEME
|Name||PM KUSUM SCHEME|
|Full Form||Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan Yojana|
|Ministry||Ministry of the New and Renewable Energy|
|Sector||Central sector scheme|
|Aim||promote the use of renewable energy in the agricultural sector and offer the benefits of solar farming to Indian farmers|
OBJECTIVE AND BENEFITS OF PM KUSUM SCHEME
The scheme would ensure that sufficient local solar/ other renewable energy based power is available for feeding rural load centres and agriculture pump-set loads, which require power mostly during the day time. As these power plants will be located closer to the agriculture loads or to electrical substations in a decentralized manner, it will result in reduced Transmission losses for STUs and Discoms. Moreover, the scheme will also help the Discoms to achieve the RPO target.
