"With globalization around and job potential reducing, unemployment is one of the major problems in India. On the other hand there is huge untapped potential for solar energy utilization at all levels," said Mr. S. Roy, Director of Institute of Solar Technology. IST appeals all unemployed youth to use their energy for self employment in the field of renewable energy. This will give the satisfaction of serving mother earth through eco-friendly technology.
Mr. Naskar describes:
1. Technical training of rural youth to assemble, repair and maintain the rooftop solar units.
2. Institute of Solar Technology will train the youth of low-income families to become solar technicians. These youth technicians will be establishment of a rural Green Shop, Green Club in remote areas and thus a valuable resource for solar companies interested in expanding into the most remote areas of India.
Youth solar technicians will:
i) They will learn to assess the buyer’s needs and recommend the appropriate system size.
ii) Assist energy vendors by providing on-site diagnostics of downed systems. This will save the vendor the time and money sending a technician from the city.
