Solar power has been making rapid strides in the Distributed Renewable Energy systems network with increased adoption of solar water pumping solutions across the country. In this sphere, Chhattisgarh has taken the lead and been the frontrunner across all states in India. One of the leading system integrators, Rawmate Solutions has pioneered the design, installation and commissioning of the first large scale Solar Community Irrigation Project in Village Borenda, District Durg, Chhattisgarh. The project was conceptualised and executed under the guidance of the Chhattisgarh Renewable Energy Development Agency (CREDA)
This project is unique as it taps the free flowing and perennially available water from the river Kharun and distributes it across 100 hectares and directly benefits 217 beneficiary farmers. This system is powered by 100 HP(20HP*5nos) pump sets, and has a pipeline distribution network of close to 21 kms. This novel project came as boon to the farmers of the region who were till now completely dependent on rain fed agriculture. The project was completed at an approximate cost of Rs 3.3 crs and was recently inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Shri Bhupesh Baghel
The execution of the project however was not easy. As Mr K S Khurana, Partner- Tatva Group tells us, there were significant challenges that were overcome on this journey. COVID 19, followed by the lockdown and incessant monsoons were all elements that threatened to derail the project but driven by passion and persistence, the project was commissioned successfully. Rawmate Solutions has also been further mandated by CREDA to execute 3 more such projects across the state of Chhattisgarh, where work is currently ongoing. Two of these projects are in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh. These projects shall ring a transformational change in the lives of the farmers
