“We applaud the visionary initiative of the Government of India in launching the ‘Pradhan Mantri Suryodaya Yojana.’ The commitment to providing rooftop solar to 1 crore households reflects a profound dedication to sustainable and inclusive development. A decent shelter is vital for improved health and well-being.
Homes equipped with solar energy will bring in environmental as well as financial sustainability to families. This initiative will alleviate the burden of electricity bills for low-income families and it will also chart a course towards self-reliance. This transformative approach will contribute towards a greener and more resilient India. It is the right step in the direction where every home is a source of clean and renewable energy, fostering a brighter and more sustainable tomorrow for the people of India.”
