The Rajasthan government has taken many necessary steps towards making the state self-reliant in the energy sector. Simultaneously, special attention is being paid to develop renewable energy sources, chief minister Ashok Gehlot said on Saturday. Gehlot was speaking after virtually inaugurating a 220 KV grid substation in Chattargarh, Bikaner, from his official residence in Jaipur.

Rajasthan has immense potential in solar energy, and the government is working towards providing electricity to every village in the state, he said.

The state government has released 1.81 lakh new agricultural connections in two years. In this year’s budget, 50,000 new agricultural connections have been announced. A provision has been made for installing 50,000 solar pumps, he said.

He said farmers could increase their income by selling solar power to the government by installing solar panels on their vacant land.

He asked the farmers to take advantage of the scheme’s subsidy and put solar panels in their vacant fields.

Energy Minister BD Kalla said power generation capacity in the state had reached 23,000 MW. The state government gives a subsidy of ₹16,000 crores to farmers every year on agricultural power connections.
