According to reports in the media, inTarvo Technologies Pvt. Ltd., India’s largest and fastest growing provider of Integrated Lifecycle Management (ILM) Services has bagged a tender from BSNL for powering a certain number of telecom sites with Solar Power in the Western Uttar Pradesh region.

All the cell phone towers will now run by tapping in Solar energy instead of diesel generators. This arrangement of powering the energy sites using renewable resources will bring down the dependence on Diesel Generators that power telecom towers in the country guzzling fuel worth crores every year and dumping carbon emissions in the air. This initiative is set to promote renewable energy particularly Solar, in the Western U.P region, that has severe power deficit.

On the occasion Mr. Sanjay Bhasin, President & CEO-Telecom, inTarvo Technologies Limited, said “This is the first time that BSNL has given such an opportunity to inTarvo to facilitate the powering of energy sites. The planned solar power project would help the remote areas of Western U.P to become a clean and green region. We plan to establish with these rollouts that alternate sources of energy such as Solar are cost-effective and sustainable solutions and not just some experimental technology”

“The generators at the bottom of the cell phone towers run on diesel, we will convert all those into green towers, reducing the use of diesel which will in turn slash costs as well as hazardous carbon emissions.” He further added.

Panchabuta had earlier reported that a proposal was being finalized  by the ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE) that was aimed at containing the use of polluting diesel generators to provide back-up power for cellphone towers and the government asking telecom companies to install solar panels to generate backup power for cellphone towers.
