Solar and Electrical works
The Nagaland Health Project is investing in off-grid electrical power solutions that will be adapted to the needs of each targeted health facility in order to assure a basic level of functioning (i.e. for lighting and high priority equipment), acting as back-up when grid power is not available. In all facilities, Hybrid solar energy technology will be installed. Sunlight, altitude and temperature conditions in Nagaland make solar energy a cost-effective option. The project is also supporting in installation of Solar Street light, solar water pumps and solar water heaters in targeted health facilities.
Due to Unreliable power supply, frequent power cuts, failure of transformer during bad weather and the existing generator back up due to high diesel consumption which could not meet the power requirement for providing smooth delivery service. Therefore Alternate power supply i.e Hybrid Solar power back up and rewiring of old electrical wiring was required to improve the delivery service in the District Hospital, Community Health centre, Primary Health Centre and SC across the state.
During first phase of implementation, investments was made in 1 District Hospital and solar plant has been successfully installed and commissioned in Wokha District Hospital. Currently work is under progress in 8 District Hospital, 21 CHC, 55 PHC 55 and 89 SC. Work is expected to be completed during FY 2021-22.
