In Gujarat, India, solar panels can be seen lined up in a long man-made canal, which is used to bypass the region’s waterways. It also generates clean energy and prevents water from evaporating. In 2011, the Gujarat state administration proposed solar head-end power in India as a strategy to improve renewable energy generation without causing land issues.
This was revealed when a Norwegian diplomat Erik Solheim shared a post on Twitter praising the placement of solar panels on the Gujarat Canal which attracted a lot of attention. He shared images of solar panels laid out in the canal and wrote, “India is covering the canals with solar energy. It provides clean energy and stops water evaporation at the same time. time. From Gujarat. We have so many solutions. Implement them! (sic)”
India 🇮🇳 coats its channels with solar energy. It provides clean energy and stops water evaporation at the same time. From Gujarat.

People praise eco-friendly initiative
Solheim shared the post yesterday (April 19), and since then it has gone viral with over 31,000 likes, over 5,000 retweets and a plethora of comments from people who praised the government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for such an initiative. One Twitter user wrote, “This is a truly unique solution implemented by Gujarat Solution on Narmada canals in all states becoming a power surplus state. Not only canals but all houses independents have their own solar panels. Too much to learn from GJ. (sic)”
Thanks for sharing. It also keeps solar panels cooler, increasing their efficiency.
Also, there is no cost involved in purchasing expensive land for the installation of the solar panels.

Gujarat is becoming a big hub for Solar. My small and medium listed companies could benefit immensely over the next 3-4 years

This is a truly unique solution implemented by Gujarat Solution on the Narmada canals in all the states thus becoming an energy surplus state. Not only the canals, but all independent houses have their own solar panels. Too much to learn from GJ.

Another person commented, “India is rapidly moving towards clean energy and environmentally friendly energy. India has decided to embrace unconventional energy sources at the earliest and we have already achieved some of the targets ahead of time. A third comment read: “This is on SSNNL’s Vadodara branch canal. We are also planning to implement it at Kachchh branch canal, Kachchh, the area which has nascent potential for solar power and renewable energy strictly speaking.”

It is on the Vadodara branch channel of SSNNL. We are also planning to implement this at the Kachchh Branch Canal, Kachchh, the region which has nascent potential for solar power and renewable energy in itself.

Prime Minister Modi started this when he was Chief Minister of Gujarat.

Solheim’s post on ‘cool rickshaw’
Diplomat Erik Solheim is known for sharing interesting messages on Twitter. Earlier this month, Solheim shared an image of a rickshaw driver growing grass on the roof of the rickshaw to keep cool in the summer. In the image, the man is seen sitting in his rickshaw, which is surrounded by lush vegetation. A thick blanket of grass had been spread over the man’s rickshaw. Apart from that, there are lots of small potted plants all over the rickshaw.
