Prospective customers seeking to know more about the functioning of the solar roof-top systems can also attend the presentation planned by MESCOM at the Town Hall. A help-desk is also being planned by MESCOM to guide citizens on the procedure to be followed for obtaining feasibility certificate, which is a pre-requisite for availing Bank Loans.”


“All citizens of Mangaluru Taluk are invited to visit the camp which starts at 10:00 am on February 17, 2016 and make use of this golden opportunity to avail credit for installation of roof-top solar systems. Lets join together to make Mangaluru a ‘solar’ city,” Ibrahim said.
