Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that solar energy is going to be a major source of energy needs not only today but in the 21st century as well because solar energy is Sure, Pure, and Secure.
While inaugurating through video conference Asia's largest solar energy project in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa, the Prime Minister said that today Rewa has really created history. Rewa has been identified as Ma Narmada and a white tiger. Now the name of Asia's largest solar power project has also been added.
The Prime Minister said that the people of Madhya Pradesh and the industries will get electricity from this solar plant, even the metro rail in Delhi will get its benefits. Like Rewa, work is going on on big solar power plants in Shajapur, Neemuch, and Chhatarpur, he added.
Referring to the energy needs of the country, Mr. Modi said that as India is moving towards the new era of development, our hopes and aspirations are increasing, so our energy and electricity needs are also increasing. In such a situation, the self-sufficiency of electricity is very important for self-reliant India.
Prime Minister cautioned that when we are launching large projects of renewable energy, we are also making sure that our determination towards clean energy is seen in every aspect of life. We are trying that its benefits reach every corner of the country, every section of society and every citizen. Governor Anandi Ben Patel, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, and many Union ministers attended the program.
