650 MW solar power projects to be inaugurated in Gujarat

Talking to a group of Solar Power Developers Forum, Modi said all these 15 solar power projects have been completed in a record time of 16 months.

Modi said Gujarat is poised to become the world’s solar energy capital. He said his government would come out with a solar energy policy soon.

"We have already sent a letter to the Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) to develop a system along the 1,500 KMs India-Pakistan border to not only produce power but also put in place a solar-powered defence mechanism," Modi said.
