Gujrat Govt. approved 34 Solar Power projects
34 solar power projects have been approved in Gujarat as per a news in Economic Times
The total investment that will be made is Rs.12,000 crore over the next few years.
After this investment Gujarat will be the top state in India for clean energy.
These plants will generate 1,250 million units of eco-friendly energy every year.
This will save the use of 875,000 tonnes of coal per year and also avoid 1.25 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emission.
Today India spends 2.6 percent of its gross domestic product (GDP) which is equivalent to $1.2 trillion to cope with climate change effects.
The National Action Plan on Climate Change has identified solar energy as the main way to generate clean electricity since coal-fired thermal power plants have been found to be the biggest sources of carbon dioxide emissions around the world.
