Govt., renewable energy programmes have been promoted with the
help of Central/ State incentives after determining the cost
benefits. The programmes/schemes implemented by HIMURJA are as
I. SOLAR THERMAL
Solar energy can play a significant role in rural
development especially remote areas where fuel wood is scarce. Solar
Cookers have been provided to the potential beneficiaries on
Solar Water Heating Systems
are being provided for Households and for other Institutions.
popularizing and providing Solar Photovoltaic systems. Ministry of
New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Govt. of India is providing a
package of incentives to popularize these systems throughout the
ENERGY EFFICIENT DEVICES: -
In order to
conserve energy, HIMURJA has provided Pressure Cookers and CFL
Systems to identified families on subsidized.
HYDEL PROJECTS UPTO 5 MW BEING EXECUTED THROUGH PSP
The State Govt. has
entrusted the responsibility of harnessing of small hydro potential
upto 5 MW by private investment through HIMURJA under the
administrative control of Non Conventional Energy Sources Deptt. of
H.P. Govt. so that optimum utilization of hydro potential in Small
Hydro can be achieved.
V. MICRO HYDEL PROJECTS
IMPLEMENTED UNDER UNDP-GEF, GOI

commissioned the projects under UNDP-GEF Program.
VI. OTHER MHEP IMPLEMENTED BY HIMURJA UNDER STATE/CENTRE SECTOR.
Gharola (100 KW), Sarahan (30 KW)
and Bara Bhangal (40KW) MHEPs

VII. PORTABLE MICRO HYDEL
Operation and maintenance of Portable
Gen. Sets commissioned in remote Pangi Sub-Division of Chamba Distt.
and in Dodra Kawar is being done by HIMURJA.
VIII. HYDRAM POPULARIZATION.
Hydro Power at the micro level can also be
utilized in a cost effective manner in the form of mechanical power
through Hydraulic-Ram (Hydrams). Major feature of a hydraulic ram
are no requirement of an external source of energy, low maintenance
and operation cost and the requirement of some minimal head at the
water source. During the year the repair work of the Hydrams
installed in the Pradesh under various schemes has been carried out
to them functional in different districts.
been made for wide publicity of various schemes/programmes being
implemented by HIMURJA and create awareness about renewable energy
programmes amongst general masses throughout the State including
remote/tribal areas. Publicity have been done through following
programmes funded by MNRE, Govt. of India.
Gandhi Akshay Urja Diwas has been celebrated on 20th
August allover the State with financial assistance of Ministry
of New and Renewable Energy(MNRE), Govt. of India.
Advertisements have been published in various Newspapers/Weekly and
Exhibitions of New and Renewable Energy Devices have been organized
during the International/ National and State level fairs during
2008-09 with the Central Financial Assistance of MNRE, Govt. of
Awareness camps has been organized through Mobile Exhibition Van,
