Union Minister for Science and Technology Harsh Vardhan has said that solar energy production has to be turned into a mass movement. He was speaking after dedicating a newly set automated solar module production plant at the Central Electronics Limited plant at Sahibabad, Ghaziabad near Delhi today. He said everyone should emulate the example and progress made by Gujarat in the field of solar energy under the Steward ship of Narendra Modi while he headed the State Government. He appealed to people share Modi’s enthusiasm in taking forward the country in the field of solar energy.
Vardhan said that he had informed the Parliament that an Aeroplane fueled by solar energy flew from Switzerland to India. In the days of global warming while a large number of deaths are occurring in Andhra Pradesh efforts should be made to produce solar energy in every household and sell it to the grid. Delhi receives high quality sunlight for more than 300 days. This can be used to convert every house into a power house. Citizens could use their terraces for tapping solar power for not just their needs but also make incomes by trading with the grid. Delhi’s carbon footprint would then be diminished.
