Cheap nano power set to light up rural homes

Abstract:
Electrification of homes in rural areas would no more be a distant dream.

Jamshedpur-based Ekta Telecommunication and Systems is working on incorporating nanotechnology in the development of solar modules to provide electricity to all at an affordable rate.

The advanced technology can be a boon for rural and urban homes. Increase in efficiency is another benefit of the technology.

The technology, based on the use of a combination of solar cells to build a module and eventually a solar cell, would be developed with the use of thin polymer sheets. Electricity would be generated by placing the thin sheet on the rooftop and drawing solar the power for lighting up the entire house.

"Solar electricity is the only answer to the power crisis in contemporary times. The adoption of nanotechnology would ensure that we can provide electricity to people at prices lower than what the commercial power providers charge," said Niraj Kumar Mishra, the chairman and managing director of Ekta Telecommunication and Systems.

The company is also working on making the modules available at affordable prices. Ekta is also focussing on increasing the efficiency of the modules.
