History

Though all villages of the State of Haryana were electrified, but still there are few hamlets (dhanies) in the hilly shivalik belt of Distt. Panchkula, which are still un-electrified. The electrification with the conventional grid electricity is not economically feasible due to hilly terrain and less no. of houses in each hamlet.

Ministry of Non-conventional Energy Sources, Govt. of India has launched a scheme for electrification of un-electrified hamlets/villages with renewable energy technologies for which Ministry is providing central financial assistance @ 90% of the benchmark cost fixed by the Ministry. The remaining cost is to be borne by the concerned nodal agency/village panchayats. As per MNES guidelines, only those hamlets/villages are to be electrified under this project which are not to be electrified with the conventional grid electricity by 2012.

Accordingly, a project proposal for electrification of 45 un-electrified hamlets of Morni hills with solar photovoltaic technology was got prepared and after obtaining the certificate from the HVPNL that these hamlets are not be electrified with the conventional grid electricity by 2012, this detailed project report was forwarded to the MNES, GOI for their consideration and sanctioned. The Ministry has sanctioned this project proposal under which 38 hamlets were to be electrified by providing SPV home lighting system (Model-IV) consisting of 2 light points and one fan to each household alongwith SPV street lights. The remaining 7 hamlets were to be electrified by installing SPV power plant of 5 KW capacity in each hamlet. The total project cost for electrification is Rs. 253.30 lakhs, out of which Ministry is providing Central Financial Assistance of i.e. Rs. 146.83 lakhs. From the remaining Rs. 106.43 lakhs, Rs. 40.00 lakhs have been provided by the State Govt. and Rs. 66.47 lakhs by the Shivalik Development Agency.
