Solar has been revolutionizing power needs of India. It is now soon reaching all corners. Recently, a Bishop’s house in Cochin has been solarized. Cochin is an important port city of Kerala on the south west coast and the territory of the diocese of Cochin covers 235 square kilometers in the state of Kerala.
It is situated between the Arabian Sea in the west, the archdiocese of Verapoly in the north and in the east, and the diocese of Alleppey in the south. Cochin is considered the commercial hub and industrial capital of Kerala since time immemorial. This beautiful seaside city is flanked by the Western Ghats on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west.
Here’s how it went solar:
After the reorganization of diocese of Cochin in 1886, five Portuguese bishops ruled the place. In 1950, the diocese was handed over to the native clergy. Dr. Alexander Edezhath (1951-1975) was the first Indian bishop. He was succeeded by Bishop Joseph Kureethara (1975-1999). After his demise, in 2000 Bishop John Thattumkal was appointed as the bishop of the diocese and he was suspended from his responsibilities over a scandal. Bishop Joseph Kariyil was appointed as the new bishop of Cochin on May 8, 2009 and was installed as the bishop of Cochin on July 5, 2009.
He is a supporter of green energy and thus, decided to do something for the environment by installing solar at his house. He got in touch with Mr Rosen John (proprietor of Cochin Solar Tech), who spearheads solar installations for Su-Kam Power Systems Limited in and around Cochin. Mr Albin S Alex, technical engineer at Cochin Solar Tech installed 18 KW solar power system to cater to the needs of the Bishop’s house.
Rs. 2.1 lakhs Solar Savings at Bishop’s house:
This was a large scale solar installation at Bishop’s house located at Fort Cochin. Thus, this entire installation costed around Rs. 27 lakhs which can be recovered in the next few years. It generates about 72 units per day which means 25920 units per annum. This will result in huge amount of savings amounting to Rs. 2,07,360 per year. Once the entire cost gets recovered, free electricity can be enjoyed for a lifetime. This electricity is 100% eco-friendly and doesn’t require any major maintenance.
