If things go as per the Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s plans, then nine ports in the country and four stadiums in New Delhi will start harnessing solar power by setting up their own solar plants.

According to Dr. Ashwini Kumar, Managing Director of the Renewable Energy Corporation of India, discussions in this regard are going on with the officials concerned. The nine ports are expected to have a total solar energy generation capacity of 135 MW, he said.
Already the Chinnaswamy Cricket stadium in Bengaluru has shown the way by setting up a solar power plant, he pointed out.
