Uttar Pradesh: The Solar Silicon Valley of India
Much attention has been paid to the distributed clean energy revolution brewing in Bihar. But for all the hype generated by Minister Kumar, what’s happening next door in Uttar Pradesh may be even more exciting. The state is quickly becoming a hotbed for distributed solar activity. Two companies OMC, and Mera Gao, are leading the way already reaching thousands of villagers with innovative solar mini-grid models. Now it appears these models have caught the attention of the UP government which recently announced a 1 GW solar policy. While much depends on how that policy is designed, what these companies are doing today is already putting UP at the forefront of India’s attempts to deliver on energy access.
