Maharashtra working on solar policy
Maharashtra would now have a solar policy which would introduce the concept of solar power parks, encouraging private solar power generation in the State. The policy would also suggest making solar geysers mandatory for buildings and solar panels on all the government establishments throughout the State.
The Minister for Power Chandrashekhar Bavankule said that the State government would unveil the first-ever solar policy of the State which would provide impetus to alternative energy generation initiatives in addition to providing solar pumps for agricultural purposes. He said that the State has embarked upon providing five lakh solar pumps for agricultural purpose.
