The Agency for Non-Conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT) has announced that it has inducted Kerala’s first solar-powered cold storage in Kozhikode. ANERT Director Amit Meena says that the model project will be expanding the solar-powered cold storage system across the state.

As per reports, while addressing the gathering at the Nochad Subhiksha Coconut production center, he said that the facility will help decrease the increasing power cost and maintain quality while keeping the products fresher for longer.

The model project of ANERT – the cold storage has been set up at Nochad Subhiksha Nalikera Ulpadaka Kendram, under Perambra block panchayat.

The cold storage is intended to store coconut and related products for a longer time period. It can hold up to five tonnes of products. A 5 HP compressor motor and solar panels with 6 kW capacity have been set up alongside the storage. In the event of a power outage, the cold storage can maintain its cold temperature for up to 30 hours

ANERT is a government agency in Kerala and its mission is gathering and disseminating knowledge about non-conventional energy, energy conservation, and rural technology. Earlier this month ANERT announced its plan to run shelters on solar power during the time of natural calamities. This was a part of ANERT’s plan to make shelters disaster resilient.

ANERT declared to provide rooftop solar panels, solar-powered water purifiers and filters, solar lanterns and even mobile phone charging units to the community shelters so that the inhabitants’ life would not be affected.
