A hotel at Gurudwara Junction in Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh has distinguished itself in using one of the state’s renewable energy sources.
The five-storey building named “Namo Inspire The Smart INN” which housed a guest house as well as a hotel belonging to Narayana Rao alias Babji was equipped with no less than 250 solar panels. According to Narayana Rao, it costs him Rs. 15 lakh to attach the panels to the building.
He said an average of 100 kW of electricity was generated by the solar panels where the building uses 40 kW to 50 kW per day. Surplus electricity was sold to the power grid.
Narayana Rao is confident that he will get the investment made on the solar panels in five to six years. He said he was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to use environmentally friendly renewable energy resources.
He also said that he installed the solar panels to save the environment on his side. Experts are of the opinion that, taking inspiration from Narayana Rao, if owners of other commercial establishments start attaching solar panels to their buildings, this is an inspiration to save conventional energy in all respects.
