Now you can put these concerns to rest. The Agency for Non conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT), an autonomous body under the State government, has launched a single window portal offering a secure online marketplace for renewable energy systems and devices. Customers can log on to, register online, and search for and compare products offered by empanelled vendors. Solar power plants are available from ₹1.5 lakh onwards and domestic and community biogas plants from ₹15,000.
