The projects will be spread across the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan. As part of efforts to expand the country’s renewable capacity and reduce the share of fossil fuels in its energy mix, the people are asking not to be named as the discussions are private and it is still at a recent stage.

Prime Minister has pledged to cut the emissions intensity of India’s gross domestic product by a third by 2030 from 2005 levels to fight climate change.
The country recently declared a target to set up 450 gigawatts of renewable power generation capacity by 2030, while it works on a nearer-term goal of 175 gigawatts by 2022.
