Assam Advances Green Agenda with Solar Power Projects In Nagaon

Guwahati, 28th February: Assam takes a significant leap towards its environmental sustainability goals with the inauguration of two solar power projects in Nagaon. Together generating 25 MW of power, these projects mark a substantial boost to the state’s green energy production, underscoring Assam’s commitment to renewable energy.

As part of its broader strategy to promote sustainable energy, Assam aims to generate 1,000 MW of electricity through solar power in the next three years. This ambitious target reflects the state’s vision to emerge as a leading hub for green energy in the region.

Initiated in 2017, Assam’s solar policy lays the foundation for enhancing solar power capacity by leveraging both state and central resources. Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma reiterated the government’s commitment to meeting the energy needs of all households, currently estimated at 2,200 MW.

Aligned with Sustainable Development Goals, the solar policy emphasizes the importance of clean, affordable, and equitable solar energy. By promoting grid-connected solar power plants on various establishments’ rooftops, including residential, community, institutional, industrial, and commercial buildings, Assam aims to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and foster eco-friendly electricity generation.

To attract investment and spur adoption, the government plans to install rooftop solar power plants across different districts. This proactive approach not only facilitates a transition towards sustainable energy sources but also contributes to reducing the state’s dependence on fossil fuels over time. Assam’s strides in solar energy underscore its commitment to a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come.
