  • 1. Gujarat Chief Minister dedicates world’s first Canal TopSolar Power Pilot ProjectGujarat begins research on generating power from flowing canal water with microturbines – Narendra ModiGujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today dedicated world’s first-of-its-kind ‘Canal TopSolar Power’ Pilot Project to generate electricity from solar panels placed on Narmada MainCanal (NMC) at a function near Chandrasan in Kadi taluka in Mehsana district.Speaking on the occasion, he said that one-km long panel would generate about onemegawatt of power or 16 lakh units of electricity annually. Plan is to set up series of suchsolar panels along the entire length of the 458-km long NMC, starting from Sardar SarovarProject (SSP) dam on the Narmada near Madhya Pradesh border to Rajasthan border.He said that solar panels fitted on canals are known to generate 16% more electricity. Thispilot project would also save acquiring land at the rate of six acres to generate one MW ofelectricity. It is expected to cost about Rs.8 to Rs.8.50 per unit.In a confluence of solar and hydro powers, Mr. Modi said that research has begun ongenerating hydroelectricity from flowing canal water by installing micro turbines on thesurface of the water.While the world searching for an answer to the specter of global warming, he said, Gujarat Vibrant Gujarat Summit 20131
  • 2. Government has found the answer through a generating green energy from renewablesources of energy. The world will have to take note of it.Mr. Modi said that Gujarat has earlier implemented Jyoti Gram Yojna through 24×7 hours3-phase electricity supply across the state in a span of 1,000 days. He said that 600 MWsolar power park project inaugurated earlier at Charanka would save about 7.5-lakh tonesof coal worth Rs. 125-crore at current prices, and another Rs.135-crore on freight, which in25 years total up to Rs.6,500-crore.Urban Development Minister Nitin Patel said Kadi and Sanand talukas would get lion sharein this canal top solar power project.Minister of State for Energy Saurabh Patel said that Gujarat Government provides about 70crore units of electricity to farmers in the state every day and bears a subsidy of aboutRs.3,000-crore subsidy annually. About one lakh new electricity connection would beprovided during the year, he said.Prominent among those present on the occasion included Revenue and Mehsana DistrictGuardian Minister Anandiben Patel, State Planning Board Chairman BhupendrasinhChudasma, MP Natuji Takor, MLAs and officials, SSNNL Director Vasant Raval, Energy andPetroleum Secretary B.J.
