Solar power generation capacity at Charanka Solar Park in Patan district, the first such project in the country, is soon expected to touch 790 MW.

Power cuts to prevent short-circuit in wheat fields 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Amritsar, April 20 To prevent accidental fires in wheat fields during the harvesting season, the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has started imposing power cuts in rural areas during the daytime. The decision has been taken keeping in view fire incidents in the past. PSPCL officials said, "Power in rural areas is disconnected at around 8 am before the temperature increases and is restored in the evening after the sun sets. During high temperature, even a meagre spark can cause a fire.” A resident from the rural area said focus should be diverted towards fixation of dangling wires which cause short-circuits. “In this hot weather, the electricity is required for many works. Businesses in rural areas are affected by the power cuts,” he said. The accidental fires during wheat harvesting season are reported frequently. The friction of iron parts in agricultural machinery, especially straw reapers are also a known cause for such fires. Hardly three days ago, wheat on 12 ...
