UP Government to Install Over 2,500 Solar Mast Lighting Systems Across Districts

Mast Lighting Systems

In a major step towards promoting solar and clean energy, the Uttar Pradesh government has embarked on an extensive project to install solar-powered mast lighting systems in various districts. This initiative aligns with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s vision to enhance solar energy adoption in the state.

The Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) has initiated the process, inviting applications from agencies to install 2,500 solar mast lighting systems with a budget allocation of Rs 29.78 crore. The project aims to be completed within four months of allocation.

The solar PV white LED high-mast light systems will feature lithium ferro phosphate battery systems, operating at 12.8 volts and free from ultraviolet ray emissions. These systems will provide effective outdoor illumination with a light emission rate of 135 lumens per watt and reliable operation in temperatures ranging from zero to 60 degrees Celsius. The selected agency will be responsible for the installation, operation, and maintenance of these lights over a five-year warranty period.

In addition to the solar mast lighting initiative, UPNEDA is developing an IVR and dashboard monitoring system to support the land bank management application and other schemes. This application, managed by UP Electronics Corporation Limited, will streamline tasks such as outline application management, compliance, document and contract assessment, and tenant and financial management.

Moreover, UPNEDA is advancing its initiatives by creating a generative AI-based IVR and dashboard monitoring system to oversee activities under the PM Surya Ghar Yojana and PM Kusum Yojana. Additionally, UPNEDA is developing a portal for converting stubble into biofuel, enabling farmers to sell stubble, which will be processed into biofuel. This portal will also feature a generative AI-powered IVR and dashboard monitoring system to manage beneficiaries of these schemes.
