There has been lots of trouble in Chennai due to floods and torrential rains. Things are completely shattered and just now people are turning back to normal state. But once again the rains are back and it started to affect the people. Train services were suspended due to incessant rains.
Due to rains, water logs and swamps were a common occurrence. And to avoid loss of lives, the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board started to stop the electricity. Most areas were still without electricity and in other areas the power was restored after 5 days.
In this case, The Department of Posts has decided to tap solar energy to manage disruption in power. The state Electricity board already was asking everyone to move to solar energy in case of emergency.
A press release said, "The Department of Posts has initiated action for installation of Solar Power packs in order to provide solar backup during power shutdown." Apart from post offices some residences in Chennai also had solar power and they had no power interruption. Hope the rains have taught a good lesson.
