The solar power plant project will include 500 homes built for homeless people under the Life Mission Scheme, 300 houses provided by Scheduled Caste Department will be selected for the solar power plant project.


The resident will be able to use the generated power for their energy needs. However, they can also generate income by selling the power after consumption.


This initiative is part of the Green Energy Income Scheme, which is being implemented by the Government’s Agency for New and Renewable Energy Research and Technology (ANERT). In Kerala, there are currently 400 solar power plants.


A house can sell 1200 units and earn Rs 4000 per year under the income-generating scheme.

The Life Mission Scheme will install a 2 Kw solar power plant that generates 8 units per day. KSEB will spend Rs 1.35 lakh for each plant it installs. The project, which aims to build 500 homes, will use Rs 6.75 crore of funds. It will also receive Rs 1.75 crore subsidy from central government.
