PM Modi Inaugurates Multiple Solar Projects in UP


  • PM Modi inaugurated three solar projects and laid foundation stones for two solar parks in UP.
  • All these are part of the ₹56,000 crore development projects the PM dedicated to the nation in Telangana.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated multiple solar projects with a total capacity of 200 MW in Uttar Pradesh. The PM also laid the foundation stones for two new solar parks with a cumulative capacity of 1.8 GW in the state.

The 200 MW solar projects include:
  • 75 MW solar project in Kalpi
  • 75 MW project in Jalaun district
  • 50 MW project in Kanpur Dehat

These solar plants were developed by SJVN Green Energy Ltd on a build-own-operate basis. The projects have started commercial production and the generated power will be purchased by the UP Power Corporation Ltd (UPPCL). The agreed-upon tariff rates for the power are ₹2.68, ₹2.98, and ₹2.98 per unit respectively.

Apart from these, the PM laid foundation stones for the 1,200 MW Jalaun Ultra Mega Renewable Solar Park and a 600 MW solar park in Talbehat tehsil in Lalitpur district. Together these two projects will reduce approximately 650 lakh metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over a 25-year period, as per officials.

The 1,200 MW solar project is being built at an investment of ₹796 crore and will generate 240 crore units of solar power annually. The solar park will be developed over an area of 4800 acres and cover two villages in Madhogarh and Urai tehsils of Jalaun district.

The massive project will be dedicated to the state after construction and a portion of the power will be supplied to the Indian railways.

“Land is being acquired on lease for the construction of the solar park, benefiting approximately 4500 farmers/landowners who will receive a lease payment of ₹5,000 per acre per year directly into their bank accounts for 30 years, providing them with a steady source of income besides generating local employment,” claimed an official.

Additionally, the 600 MW solar project in Lalitpur district is being set up at a cost of ₹450 crore over approximately 2700 acres of land space. MNRE will cover a portion of this investment through Central Financial Assistance (CFA).

The solar park will produce 1,200 million units of electricity annually.

All these projects are part of the ₹56,000 crore multiple power and infra projects the PM dedicated to the nation.

With extensive government push, Uttar Pradesh is witnessing a clean energy transition. In 2022, UP launched an ambitious solar energy policy with a target of achieving 22 GW of solar capacity. Moreover, in 2024, the state government announced plans to invest ₹1 lakh crore in 125 clean energy projects.
