In a significant move towards harnessing the power of renewable energy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the launch of the “Pradhanmantri Suryodaya Yojana” immediately after his visit to Ayodhya on the auspicious occasion of the consecration ceremoney of Ram Mandir.
The visionary initiative aims to illuminate the homes of one crore families across the nation by installing rooftop solar panels. This announcement came during a crucial meeting chaired by the Prime Minister at his residence on Lok Kalyan Marg, where he emphasized the potential of solar energy to make households more self-reliant in meeting their electricity needs.
During the meeting, the Prime Minister highlighted that every household with a roof has the capability to harness the power of the sun, leading to a reduction in electricity bills. This step, he believes, will contribute significantly to making households truly ‘aatmanirbhar’ or self-reliant in their electricity consumption.
The Pradhanmantri Suryodaya Yojana not only focuses on providing electricity to low and middle-income households but also presents an opportunity for individuals to generate additional income through surplus electricity generation. By encouraging the adoption of rooftop solar installations, the government aims to create a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to meet the energy needs of the people.
In a proactive move, the Prime Minister directed the initiation of a nationwide campaign to mobilize residential consumers, urging them to embrace rooftop solar technology on a large scale. This campaign seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of solar energy, ultimately encouraging a substantial number of households to transition towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.
The Pradhanmantri Suryodaya Yojana is not just a step towards cleaner energy but also a stride towards economic empowerment, as it opens doors for individuals to become active participants in the country’s journey towards renewable energy. With this initiative, India takes a significant leap towards a greener and more sustainable future, one rooftop at a time.
