A panchayat office in Sullia district of Karnataka recently decided to go solar. This area experiences power cuts about 6 to 8 hours per day so to run their load comfortably they bought a diesel generator along with electricity consumed from mains. Being a part of the government agency this panchayat office wanted to set an example by installing a solar plant: http://suk.am/SolarPanchayat
Indian state of Karnataka receives ample amount of sunlight. With an average of 11 hours and 50 mins of daylight, a solar installation in this month of March would be perfect for this area.
