"Gujarat Chief Minister dedicates world’s first ‘Canal Top Solar Power’ Pilot Project"
"Gujarat begins research on generating power from flowing canal water with micro turbines – Narendra Modi"

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today dedicated world’s first-of-its-kind ‘Canal Top Solar Power’ Pilot Project to generate electricity from solar panels placed on Narmada Main Canal (NMC) at a function near Chandrasan in Kadi taluka in Mehsana district.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that one-km long panel would generate about one megawatt of power or 16 lakh units of electricity annually. Plan is to set up series of such solar panels along the entire length of the 458-km long NMC, starting from Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP) dam on the Narmada near Madhya Pradesh border to Rajasthan border.

He said that solar panels fitted on canals are known to generate 16% more electricity. This pilot project would also save acquiring land at the rate of six acres to generate one MW of electricity. It is expected to cost about Rs.8 to Rs.8.50 per unit.

In a confluence of solar and hydro powers, Mr. Modi said that research has begun on generating hydroelectricity from flowing canal water by installing micro turbines on the surface of the water.

While the world searching for an answer to the specter of global warming, he said, Gujarat Government has found the answer through a generating green energy from renewable sources of energy. The world will have to take note of it.

Mr. Modi said that Gujarat has earlier implemented ‘Jyoti Gram Yojna’ through 24x7 hours 3-phase electricity supply across the state in a span of 1,000 days. He said that 600 MW solar power park project inaugurated earlier at Charanka would save about 7.5-lakh tones of coal worth Rs. 125-crore at current prices, and another Rs.135-crore on freight, which in 25 years total up to Rs.6,500-crore.

Urban Development Minister Nitin Patel said Kadi and Sanand talukas would get lion share in this canal top solar power project.

Minister of State for Energy Saurabh Patel said that Gujarat Government provides about 70 crore units of electricity to farmers in the state every day and bears a subsidy of about Rs.3,000-crore subsidy annually. About one lakh new electricity connection would be provided during the year, he said.

Prominent among those present on the occasion included Revenue and Mehsana District Guardian Minister Anandiben Patel, State Planning Board Chairman Bhupendrasinh Chudasma, MP Natuji Takor, MLAs and officials, SSNNL Director Vasant Raval, Energy and Petroleum Secretary B.J. Pandianand SSNNL Managing Director Jagdeesan.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi described the current session of Parliament as a very important one as it would be the Rajya Sabha’s 250th Session and also the 70th Year of the Indian Constitution.

Prime Minister was addressing the Media before the commencement of the Winter Session of Parliament today. He praised the Rajya Sabha for playing a major role in putting India on the track of progress.

“Friends, this is the last session of Parliament for 2019 and also an important session as it is the 250th Session of the Rajya Sabha, which played a pivotal role in the development and progress of India” On 26th of November India would be observing its 70th Constitution Day. The Indian Constitution was adopted on the 26th of November 1949 marking the completion of 70 years this year.

Prime Minister said the Constitution as the great doctrine that upheld the Unity, Integrity and Diversity of India.

“On the 26th of November we are celebrating the 70th Constitution Day completing 70 years since the its adoption. This constitution upholds the country’s Unity, the country’s Integrity, India’s diversity. It encompasses in itself the beauty of India. And it is the driving force of the country. This session of Parliament should become a source of awareness to the public about the 70 years of our constitution”

Prime Minister appealed to all the MPs to actively and positively participate in various discussions as was the previous session, in order to help the country get the best out of their discussions, so that it can be used for the progress and welfare of the country. “Last few days we had the opportunity to meet the various leaders of almost all parties. This session, like the previous one which met immediately after the formation of the new government, should also involve the active and positive participation of all the MPs. The last session saw unprecedented achievements. I have to publicly acknowledge with pride that these achievements belong to neither the Government nor the treasury benches but to that of the whole Parliament; all the members are the rightful owners of these achievements.

I once again express my gratitude to all the MPs for their active participation and hope that this session also would with renewed vigour work for the progress of the country. We want a discussion on all issues and it is necessary we have great debates either for or against and use the best solutions that come out of it for the betterment and welfare of the country.

I wish all the Members their very best.”
