DoT panel recommends mass solar cell towers for BSNL



A telecom department (DoT) panel has recommended that stater-un telecom company Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) be tasked with expediting mass solarisation of its cell towers in India's power strapped rural zones with support from Universal Services Obligation Fund (USOF).
The proposal is seen as the first step by the government to address the telecom sector's concerns about the prohibitive capex costs of deploying green energy technologies like solar for powering cell towers in line with the DoT's green telecom policy unveiled in January 2012.
