Lucknow : Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh is soon set to become a Solar Hub in the times to come. This has been worked out by the ruling State government of UP. Cheif Minister of UP, Akhilesh Yadav has announced his ambitious plans for setting up a Solar Energy Park in Jalaun, UP. The capacity of this Solar Energy hub is estimated to be around 1000 megawatts.
To make the project see the light of its day, Akhilesh Yadav has already made procurement of 250 acres of land on behalf of UP government. UP is grappling with energy crisis, load shedding and disruptive power scenario. In such times of ever-rising energy needs, this source of energy would make UP self-dependent and help in resolving power matters, both electorally as well as electricity-based.
Solar parks generally contribute in saving tonnes of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. Solar parks also contribute in saving tonnes of natural gas annually. Based on the national solar policy, power purchase agreement will be strategized and tariff structures will be chartered out thereafter.
