UP’s Bundelkhand Expressway will be state’s first Solar-Powered E-Way
The expected lifespan of this project is 25 years, with a payback period set at 10 to 12 years
As part of its ongoing efforts to promote the use of solar energy in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi government plans to transform the Bundelkhand Expressway into the state's first solar expressway.
The government intends to establish solar power plants along the Bundelkhand Expressway under the PPP model, targeting the generation of 550 MW of solar power.
For this initiative, the government has identified 1700 hectares of land on the Bundelkhand Expressway. Several prominent companies have shown interest in participating in this project.
Once completed, the project has the potential to illuminate one lakh houses connected to the expressway every day.
The expected lifespan of this project is 25 years, with a payback period set at 10 to 12 years.
