Gandhinagar: The World's First Solar City
Alex Steffen, 22 Apr 05

Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat, has announced plans to become the world's first "solar city," meeting essentially all of its electricity needs through solar power:

"The proposed ambitious plan would create the state capital as a first ‘solar city’ in India where the major necessities of power will be fulfilled through non-conventional sources of energy. At present, Gandhinagar, the base of major state government establishments, is consuming over four megawatt power every day. With implementation of proposed plan the dependency of the state capital from the electricity power would be reduced to the negligible levels,” said S B Patil, deputy director [of the Gujarat Energy Development Agency]
