Not only this, Gujarat has also taken new steps in the field of solar energy, wind energy and has made new policies. Which will make Gujarat a global player in the field of renewable energy. Besides, Gujarat has been ranked first in the country in installing solar roof top system. The target for the year 2020-21 was two lakh solar roof top systems and an installed capacity of 600 MW. Gujarat will become path maker for that also. Which is almost on the verge of fulfillment. Surya Gujarat Yojana will produce clean and pollution free energy. People will also get relief in electricity bills. Not only that but household electricity consumers will also be able to earn income by selling electricity in addition to their own consumption. Gujarat is currently generating 943 MW of electricity through solar rooftops. Gujarat alone accounts for 22% of the country’s solar rooftop power generation. In other words, Gujarat is also No. 1 in power generation through solar rooftops. Minister Saurabh Patel said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, 12,267 MW is being generated in Gujarat at present from wind energy, solar energy, biomass energy and other renewable energy sources. The target is to reach 20,000 MW by 2022 next year.
