Soon pay power bills via mobile App

Porvorim: Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar on Wednesday said the government is planning to introduce a mobile app for payment of electricity bills.Addressing the media, Madkaikar said, “The government is planning to provide online bills to the consumers, Tata Consultancy is developing a mobile application which will enable consumers to pay the bill by using the application.”Speaking on the solar policy, the minister said that many firms are interested in setting up plants to generate solar power in Goa. “Goa government has formulated solar power policy and the same has been kept open for public scrutiny and suggestions for the second time. We have a target from the Centre to generate 150 Megawatt solar powers. The government is buying 31 megawatt solar power. 600 Megawatt is peak hour demand of Goa. We have sufficient power but infrastructure is needed,” Madkaikar said“Goa is receiving gas power, nuclear power and coal based power. NIT, Rajbhavan, PWD office at Tonca and Port Trust are currently making use of solar energy. However, Saligao and Tuem will get new sub stations and for this the government has signed an agreement with REL. Saligao substation will solve the North Goa power woes to a large extent,” he added.
