Konark town, Sun Temple to be 100% solarised

May 21, 2020 14:04 IST

A new scheme has been launched by the central government to solarise the entire town of Konark in Odisha along with the Konark Sun Temple, according to a PTI report. As per the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the scheme will be possible with the help of a 10-megawatt grid-connected solar project accompanied with other solar off-grid applications like solar drinking water kiosks and trees. The aim is to facilitate PM Narendra Modi's vision of developing the town of the Sun Temple as 'Surya Nagri'. The plan to meet all energy requirements of the town with solar energy will be implemented by Odisha Renewable Energy Development Agency (OREDA).
