India is celebrating government efforts to promote green energy: all 12 of its major shipping ports will switch to renewable sources, making India the first country to convert all of its dockyards to run on electricity generated from solar and wind installation.
The government will install 200 megawatt solar and wind plants at the ports by 2019. 75 percent of the total output will be generated via solar, with the remainder falling to on and off-shore wind firms.
This project will help in the reduction of carbon emission and lead to improvement of the environment around the port; the project won’t be cheap, probably it will reach 500 crore, around $77,6 million.
