Azure Power commissions solar plant in UP

 Azure Power’s solar power plant in Uttar Pradesh, the state’s first large-scale solar plant under the UP solar policy, was recently inaugurated by the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
Spread across 56 acres of land across Karharakala in Mahoba, the plant will electrify 10,000 households and has created an estimated 500 jobs in the locality. Additionally, the clean energy from the power plant will result in elimination of carbon dioxide equivalent to 15,000 cars from the Indian roads.
Under the UP Solar Power Policy 2013, operational until 31 March 2017, the state government has a target of installing 500 MW capacity of solar power by 2017 across the state. In 2014, Azure Power signed a MoU with the UP government to promote Solar Power Installations.
