Buddhadeb for green energy

Staff Reporter

Invites companies manufacturing photo-voltaic hardware



West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee.

KOLKATA: Emphasising the need for generating electricity using non-conventional power resources like solar power and wind power to control global warming, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said on Friday that his government has formulated a new policy under which companies manufacturing photo-voltaic hardware will be encouraged to set up factories in the State.

Inaugurated

Speaking at the inaugural function of Webel Electronics Industry Park at Sonarpur in West Bengal's South 24 Parganas district, Mr. Bhattacharjee said: “Around 94 per cent of the electricity consumed by us comes from thermal power currently and it results in global warming that is dangerous. Our State needs to tap greener energies like solar and wind power and we welcome all those companies that manufacture photo-voltaic components to set up plants here.”

Pointing out that the electronics industry park will usher in a new era of large-scale hardware manufacturing in the State, he said that the initiative will generate employment for the hundreds of engineering students passing out every year.

The Webel Electronics Industry Park project will be a state-of-the-art standard electronics industry park with adequate infrastructural facilities for the establishment of electronics, telecommunications and renewable energy component-manufacturing industries.
