The Konark Sun Temple in Odisha will soon be solar-powered. The central government will contribute $250 million to the CFA.

The central government has launched a program for the solarization of Odisha’s Konark Sun Temple and the surrounding Konark town.

According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), under this program, the government plans to set up a 10 MW grid-connected solar project and various solar off-grid applications such as solar trees, solar drinking water kiosks, and off-grid solar power projects with battery storage.
