The farmers in AP will very soon be producing electricity apart from their usual job of growing crops. The SED (State Energy Department) is now set to be launching a scheme known as Solar Farming. It is actually the first time that such a scheme is coming to India. Under this scheme, the existing pump sets will be getting replaced with highly energy efficient solar pump sets, which will be enabling the generation of power. After making use of the power that is needed for drawing water to the field, the farmers can start pumping the remaining energy to the grid and by doing so, they can earn an additional income.
