Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has instructed officials to provide uninterrupted electricity to the villages in the state, even during the night. The CM has directed that solar panels should be installed in the villages to ensure full-time electricity supply.
The move comes as part of the state government’s plan to provide electricity to every household in the state by the end of this year. The state government has also set a target of generating 10,700 megawatts of solar energy by 2022.
The CM has instructed officials to identify villages that are yet to receive electricity and install solar panels there. He has also asked them to ensure that the panels are installed in a timely manner and are functioning properly.
The installation of solar panels in the villages will not only ensure uninterrupted power supply but also help in reducing the dependence on conventional sources of energy, which are fast depleting.
The Chief Minister has stressed on the importance of providing electricity to the villages as it will not only improve the standard of living of the people but also help in the overall development of the state.
The state government has also announced various schemes to promote the use of solar energy in the state. Under the schemes, subsidies are being provided to the people for the installation of solar panels in their houses and commercial establishments.
The government is also setting up solar parks in various parts of the state to generate solar energy on a large scale. These parks will not only help in meeting the energy demands of the state but also contribute to the overall development of the state.
