In a bid to embrace solar energy, Uttar Pradesh aims to convert 17 key cities, including Ayodhya and Varanasi, into solar-powered hubs. Ayodhya is already on track to become the state’s inaugural solar city, with significant progress witnessed in solar infrastructure installation.

The state government’s ambitious plan involves developing solar cities initially, followed by the establishment of solar villages.
