Director General of Police Nagaland Besesayo Kezo on Friday commissioned a 20 kilowatt solar power plant at the Nagaland Police Headquarters in Kohima. Speaking during the occasion, the DGP highlighted the necessity of power in the modern civilisation and said that people depend on energy (power) for almost every purpose. He pointed out that in the course of this requirement, the increase in setting up of huge power sources such hydel and thermal power projects with the aim to generate more electricity, the ecosystem of the earth is getting damaged.
Towards this, Kezo said usage of renewable energy like sun, wind and nuclear energy should be encouraged. He expressed gratitude to the New & Renewable Energy department for commissioning the much needed solar power plant at the police establishment. The DGP also urged upon all police personnel of PHQ to judiciously use power.
Director of New & Renewable Energy TS Angami gave a brief report on the commissioning of the solar power plant at the PHQ. He said 20 kilowatts power will not suffice the requirement of the entire establishment and cautioned against usage of high power consumption appliances such as heaters, air conditioners etc.
He reiterated that the newly installed solar power plant is restricted for lighting purpose only. He called upon the staff of the PHQ to use power accordingly and carry out maintenance works as required so that the efficiency of the solar power plant will last.
