Kazakh farmers switch to renewable energy
Baku, Azerbaijan, August 6
By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:
A number of farms in Kazakhstan’s Karaganda region have switched to ‘green’ technologies for resolving the issues with water and electricity on remote grasslands, Trend reports with reference to the press office of the regional akimat (administrative center).
Thus, the solar panels have been installed by Lega and Shag farms in Rodnikovskiy rural area of Osakarov district.
“One solar panel yields up to three kWh of electricity. The efficiency of the panel is not relayed on the weather, due to the fact that it has accumulators, which accumulate the energy during sunny days,” the report said.
“The Shag farm has purchased the panel not so long ago. It is necessary to simplify the work on pumping water and providing the borehole with electricity,” the Head of the Farm Alexander Shirinsky said.
The Shag farm is concerned with livestock breeding and cultivation.
“The ‘green’ technologies in the region are being implemented via the public private partnership,” the report said.
