      Electricity Minister K. Krishnankutty inaugurated the plant on Thursday through videoconferencing . T Siddique, MLA, presided.

      “The solar wind hybrid power plants, each with a capacity of 1.5 kW, have been set up by the ANERT in 10 houses constructed by the State government under a rehabilitation package for the families who were part of the Muthanga land agitation,” Narendra Nath Veluri, Chief Executive Officer, ANERT, told The Hindu.

      Each plant has a capacity to generate 1 kilowatt solar and 500 watts wind power a day, Mr. Veluri said. “The system provides sufficient power for a 10-hour battery backup,” Mr. Veluri said adding that all the houses were equipped with two LED lights each and mobile charging points.

      The project will be highly beneficial to those people who are living in remote areas, settlements inside forests in adverse weather conditions, he said.

      The agency has spent ?28.26 lakh from its annual plan outlay for the 2021-22 financial year to implement the project, Mr. Veluri added.

      “We are planning to set up as many as 40 similar projects in non-electrified remote tribal areas in the State in the near future,” he added.
