On Sunday, Gujarat's Modhera hamlet was dubbed the nation's first entirely solar-powered village by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who also expressed gratitude to the state's residents for their support over the previous 20 years.

The Center is working to ensure that people may become power producers, the PM stated. Previously, the government produced electricity, and citizens purchased it.

Here, the household owners and farmers are the electrical producers and consumers. They sell the government any additional power that is produced.

Modi began a three-day tour to his home state on Sunday to introduce numerous initiatives totaling more than 14,600 crore. Later this year, the state will have elections.

The PM added during his speech at the gathering that the government is offering financial support to generate electricity using rooftop solar panels and that millions of solar pumps have been installed across for irrigation purposes.
