Be grateful to irrigation facilities for cultivation

Article

The government is trying hard to electrify the people through the national grid fed by hydropower plants, natural gas power plants, coal-fired power plants and renewable power plants.
Electricity is playing a key role in operating various kinds of industries as well as all functions on daily processes. An outage of electricity can interrupt the daily routine of the people and cause delays for the time-limited work process. Hence, it is necessary to seek the best way for electrifying the people without an outage.
In the mini-budget of the 2021-22 financial year, the Kyaungsu river water pumping station in the Bago Region and Kanni and Kanmalay stations in the Magway Region are being operated with solar energy instead of electricity from other ways, according to the Department of Irrigation and Water Utilization Management.
During the period, river water pumping stations in Mandalay, Sagaing, Magway and Bago regions are being operated through solar energy. In this regard, shifting the energy system will be completed at Letpan Chaypaw and Ngathayauk stations in the Mandalay Region and Pyawywa station part II and part III and Kata-92 in the Sagaing Region this month.
Up to the end of January 2022, seven groundworks of similar stations have been facilitated with 2.3 megawatts of solar energy to irrigate farmlands in these regions.
In the coming financial year, plans are underway to change the consumption of electricity from solar energy at 17 river water pumping stations with 5.4 megawatts in five regions in order to save the electricity from the national grids to some extent, reducing the use of fuel and contributing to environmental conservation.
The department builds and maintains 245 dams, 144 diversion weirs, 72 lakes, 199 sluice gates and 210 river water pumping stations across the nation to sufficiently supply agricultural water to the farmlands.
The government makes efforts to operate the water supply facilities as much as possible amid the unbalance of consumption rate and generating capacity of electricity. Hence, user farmers need to efficiently use the irrigated water, understanding the efforts and budget allotment for generating electricity and water supply measures.

As such, all the national people need to understand the work process for generating electricity from solar energy contributing to functions of the national grid and boosting the per-acre yield of crops with an act of gratitude to the efforts and initiatives of relevant technicians and personnel.
