Assam to give concessions for green energy generation
Gogoi signals green to clean energy!
Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today said the state government will promote generation of clean energy by offering concessions to the companies coming to invest in areas like solar and wind power.
Addressing the press in Assocham energy summit here, Gogoi said, “We will consider and provide whatever concession is possible for any investment in the field of clean energy. We want to go ahead with alternative source of energy,”
He also said that Assam was suffering from global warming along with the country and he expected that the society should move towards the direction of renewable energy.
Promoting clean and green energy, Gogoi said, “We will positively consider all the proposals coming to invest in clean energy technology in Assam. Energy shortage has affected Assam and its growth, and hence there is a huge potential for investment in the energy sector,” he said.
He, however, did not elaborate whether the state government will bring out a scheme to provide concessions for green energy generation or it will consider the same on project basis.
