Solar Entrepreneurship Course an Instant Hit

Education NewsPrincipal of the Government Polytechnic M Seshagiri Rao the entrepreneurship training programme aims at imparting basic knowledge on solar energy applications to youth apart from equipping them with installation techniques and providing business insights in the field. The course is one of the 10 selected by SBTET to be offered to youth to enhance their employability. At present, 45 students are pursuing the course in two batches. Already, a batch of 30 students has passed out of the college.

The course covers the basics like usage of solar energy in day-to-day life, demand for solar energy business and tips for marketing and troubleshooting skills during field work. The course is open to all graduates and is offered at a cost of `3,750, which includes the cost of study materials and equipment. “The main advantage of the course is that after its completion, the students will get a financial assistance of `2 lakh from the state government,” explained R Venu, coordinator of the Skill Development Centre, Vijayawada.
