Mah Govt to install solar panels in the backwater of Jayakwadi & Ujani Mumbai, Aug 28 (UNI) The Maharashtra government has come up with a plan to install solar panels in the backwater of two dams in the state to generate electricity. Jayakwadi dam, located in Aurangabad district of Central Maharashtra, and Ujani dam in Solapur district of Western Maharashtra, will be the sites of the solar power generation project, an official said on Tuesday. The Marathwada Statutory Development Corporation (MSDC), a body formed by the state government, has come up with a plan to erect floating solar panels in the backwater of the two dams falling under its jurisdiction.


A study in this regard is in an advanced stage at the Ujani dam, while the Jayakwadi dam was later added to the project, he said. Located in Marathwada, the Jayakwadi dam, built on the Godavari river, is located near the Aurangabad city and is a key source of water to the arid region.  The Ujani dam, built on the Bhima river, is located in Madha tehsil of Solapur district. It is the state’s largest dam in terms of water storage capacity.
