Assam’s Ambitious Solar Initiative: From Rooftop Plants to Floating Platforms

For the past seven years, the Assam government has been actively promoting the installation of solar power plants across the state, aiming to position Assam as a green energy hub. With a target of generating 1,000 MW of electricity in the next three years, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma expressed the state’s commitment to becoming more energy-efficient. The government’s solar policy focuses on grid-connected solar power plants on rooftops of residential, community, institutional, industrial, and commercial establishments, aiming to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, Assam plans to set up floating solar power plants in various wetlands, with the first 10.50 kW capacity plant already installed in Morigaon district. The region also witnessed the inauguration of the largest solar power plant, generating at least 70 MW of electricity, in Amguri town, Sivasagar district.
