Indore’s Mayor, Pushyamitra Bhargava, announced the plan during a workshop aimed at transforming Indore into a solar city. The first phase will involve installing solar power plants on the roofs of government buildings, with the aim of increasing the city’s current generation capacity from 40 MW to 300 MW per year.


According to an official of the Indore Municipal Corporation, the total roof area of buildings in the city is estimated to be 125 lakh square metres, with 20% of it available for solar power plant installation.

To achieve this goal, the civic administration will offer subsidies to citizens, changing building sanction rules, and improving regulations for solar panel installation. The initiative is expected to make Indore an environmentally sustainable city and a model for other cities in India to follow.
