600 MW solar power projects to be inaugurated in Gujarat on 19th April 2012

Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi said 15 solar projects with a capacity to produce 600MW power will be dedicated to the nation at Charanka solar park in north Gujarat on April 19.

Talking to a group of Solar Power Developers Forum, Modi said all these 15 projects have been completed in a record time of 16 months.

Modi said Gujarat is poised to become the world’s solar energy capital.

He said his government would come out with a solar energy policy soon.

“We have already sent a letter to the Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) to develop a system along the 1,500 KMs India-Pakistan border to not only produce power but also put in place a solar-powered defence mechanism,” Modi said.
