India is set to potentially use the existing 19,000 km-long network of Narmada canals across the State for setting up solar panels to generate power.
The project will generate 16 lakh units of clean energy per annum and also prevent evaporation of 90 lakh litres of water annually from the canal. The concept will, therefore, tackle two of the challenges simultaneously by providing energy and water security.
That is innovative thinking!!
