For this purpose, the Panchayat has installed 20 rooftop solar panels each of 20 volts capacity  with financial aid from  Tapmi, Manipal.

The solar energy thus generated is sufficient to  run three computers, two printers, six lights and eight fans in the Panchayat office.  This in turn has helped the Panchayat save thousands of rupees towards electricity bill.

The Panchayat now has plans to install more solar panels and sell the excess power that is generated to the  MESCOM.
