Itanagar: In a major effort to promote a greener future and benefit the environment and local community by reducing dependence on conventional energy sources, the Indian Army’s Spear Corps has unveiled a cutting-edge 1 MW solar power plant in Sigar, situated in the East Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh.

The inauguration ceremony, held amidst great anticipation, marked a pivotal moment in the region’s journey towards renewable energy adoption.

This solar power plant is poised to play a pivotal role in reducing reliance on traditional energy sources, thereby curbing carbon emissions and mitigating environmental degradation.

This initiative underscores the Indian Army’s proactive stance towards a green future.

There is a need to improve renewable energy sources in the country to reduce dependence on other countries for energy imports. If this is not done, energy will become a major threat to the country, he cautioned. Renewable energy should be increased by 2047. Today, the country spends about 3.5% of its GDP on energy imports. So it should be reduced to 1.5% by 2027 as per the `Amrit Kaal Vision-2047’.
