The left government have started many domestic power generation projects in the last five years.” He also said that the capacity of hydropower projects will be increased and these projects will be implemented in an environmentally friendly manner as the government aims to make Kerala a power surplus state.
“State aims to produce maximum energy from water, wind and sunlight,” he added.
