NITRA embraces green power

May 01, 2017

In view of promoting green power, the Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA) has decided to install grid-connected roof-top solar power plant at its building. The plant is estimated to be fulfilling about 60-70 per cent of NITRA’s total power consumption in first phase. This effort will also reduce the pollution, which is quite prevalent in NCR and would help NITRA comply with its social responsibility.

In addition to that, this move will encourage the textile and garment units to install solar power plant, many of those have already installed in their units. Today, solar energy has established as one of the most potential non-conventional energy resources to steadily replace conventional energy sources such as the hydro electricity and thermal power, as the production of conventional energy is not likely to meet future electricity demand of the world. The availability of natural fuel such as coal, gas, oil is limited and also the power generation using that fuel creates pollution into the atmosphere.
