PM Modi had announced the ‘Pradhan Mantri Suryodaya Yojana’ with the target of installing rooftop solar earlier in January.

PM Modi said the project would entail an investment of over Rs 75,000 crore.

“In order to further sustainable development and people’s wellbeing, we are launching the PM Surya Ghar: Muft Bijli Yojana. This project, with an investment of over Rs 75,000 crore, aims to light up 1 crore households by providing up to 300 units of free electricity every month,” the prime minister said on X.
