Indore’s Holkar Stadium Goes Solar


  • A 200kW solar plant was inaugurated at the Holkar Stadium
  • The project will meet 70-75% of the stadium’s electricity requirement on non-match days.

BCCI inaugurated a solar power plant of 200kW capacity at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, on Sunday, 25th September. The solar plant, installed right before the Australia ODI, will meet 70-75% of the stadium’s electricity requirement.

The rooftop solar installation comprises 376 solar panels and is expected to generate approximately 277,400 units of clean energy annually. This energy output will satisfy the association’s electricity demand on non-match days.

The project was developed with the support of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA).

“The initiative is set to be energy saving and reduce 277 tonnes of carbon emission every year. Present at the inauguration was Captain K L Rahul (For Australia ODI) with other MPCA dignitaries before the start of play,” the BCCI said in their statement on social media.

The Holkar stadium is now part of the league of international stadiums which are powered by solar energy.

In the past year, Madhya Pradesh has taken major steps to boost its renewable energy portfolio. In March, the state government announced plans to turn of Sanchi into the World’s First Net Zero City. Moreover, the world’s largest floating solar plant is also being installed in Madhya Pradesh.
