Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that solar energy would power aspiring India in the 21st century and the country was progressing as the “most attractive market for clean energy” because of the “exemplary progress” made in this arena.
Pledging the 750 MW Rewa project in Madhya Pradesh to the nation, Modi labeled solar energy as “sure, pure and secure”. He said such large-scale solar projects were an exemplification of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
PM Modi believed India’s solar policy and approach replicated the government’s thinking of “keeping our environment, air, water pure”.
He further that all government programmes gave importance to environmental protection and ease of living.
“India has resolved the economy versus ecology quandary by concentrating on solar energy and other environment-friendly measures. Economy and ecology are not contradictory but corresponding to each other,” he said.
He said Madhya Pradesh would soon become India’s leading center of solar energy with similar large projects in progress in Neemuch, Shajapur, Chattarpur, and Omkareshwar. The state’s poor, middle-class, tribals and farmers would be the biggest beneficiaries, he added.
He also expressed confidence that the state’s farmers would also make use of the government’s ‘KUSUM’ programme and will install solar energy plants in their land for a surplus source of income.
