Shakti Pumps bags patent for innovative Solar-Powered Flour Mill

This invention carries immense significance as it empowers farmers to generate additional income, aligning with national goals for adaptable, sustainable rural development.

Shakti Pumps (India) Limited, a prominent manufacturer of energy-efficient pumps and motors in India, has proudly secured a patent for their innovative creation, the “Solar Flour Mill.” This groundbreaking invention has been acknowledged and granted by the Patent Office of the Government of India under the provisions of the Patents Act of 1970. Valid for 20 years from the filing date, this patent marks the company’s 9th successful patent acquisition.

The Solar Flour Mill is a transformative innovation designed to address electricity scarcity in rural areas. It operates independently through solar panels, eliminating the need for grid electricity, thereby reducing infrastructure costs and freeing users from electricity bills. This invention carries immense significance as it empowers farmers to generate additional income, aligning with national goals for adaptable, sustainable rural development.

Primarily aimed at areas lacking electricity, especially rural and remote regions, this unique Flour Mill operates solely on solar power. By obviating the need to travel for grain milling, it reduces effort and environmental pollution. Additionally, it offers an opportunity for solar pump users to augment their earnings, contributing to the broader aim of bolstering farmers’ incomes and uplifting rural economies. Additionally, this innovation significantly contributes to reducing carbon emissions, aligning with India’s 2030 energy objectives while also circulating economic benefits within village communities.

Dinesh Patidar, Chairman of Shakti Pumps, underscored the pivotal advantages of this patented technology. He highlighted the common challenges faced by electricity-dependent flour mills, such as unstable power supply and high maintenance costs affecting flour quality. The Solar Flour Mill, however, provides a sustainable solution by consistently operating on solar power, ensuring uninterrupted functioning even in areas with erratic electricity supply. Notably, this innovation allows mill owners to expand the number of solar panels as required, preventing unnecessary payment for unused electricity.
