According to Energy Minister Bhanwar Singh Bhati, Rajasthan has become the top option of capitalists in the sector of solar energy due to the state government’s investment-oriented energy policies. Rajasthan, he claims, has surfaced as the country’s solar energy centre.
The statement came from Bhati while addressing the personnel at the National Energy Conservation Day award ceremony at Vidyut Bhawan on Tuesday.
The minister stated that the abundance of sunlight for 325 days out of 365 days of the year creates favourable circumstances for solar power generation.
Bhati expressed that the state’s weakness, the searing desert and sandy storms, has become its power, which is drawing investment into the state, which in turn results in expanding job prospects for youth.
Rajasthan, according to Bhati, has become a leader in all disciplines, whether it is the PM Kisan Yojana, renewable energy generation, energy conservation or energy efficiency.
The administration has begun the job of conducting an energy audit and has taken measures to decrease power wastage and assure quality supplies.
Subodh Agrawal, Additional Chief Secretary (Energy), stated that this year might be considered the state’s “golden year” in the field of solar energy.
This year, a record 2,200 MW capacity solar power facility was built. Rajasthan has been proclaimed the front-runner state by the central government’s bureau of energy efficiency, and the state has been awarded for its extraordinary achievements in the field of energy conservation at a celebration held in New Delhi.
