“Solar plants can generate employment for students from various sectors who want to be entrepreneurs,” IIT-Bombay professor Chetan Solanki said at the workshop.

“The objective of the workshop was to encourage young and solar enthusiast to become solar entrepreneur for promoting solar energy technologies. We aim at understanding the technologies as well as national and state-level policies around solar energy. The best thing in solar entrepreneur is the potential business which solar energy sector can provide,” Solanki said.Solanki said state does have a government solar energy plan, but people operating them lack in technical knowledge.
