The projects are going on at the Fairwood Smart Green Company in Gurgaon. Slovenia's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec, the country's ambassador to India Darja Bavdaz-Kuret were present during the inauguration.

"Fairwood Smart Green has taken a significant step by investing in renewable sources of energy which will meet the millennium city's requirement and will transform Gurgaon as the green capital of the country," Hooda said.

"The hilly areas of Panchkula and remote areas of Bhiwani, Rewari and Mahendergarh districts in Haryana will benefit from this technology and the state government will extend all support needed to promote this," he said.

Hooda said that providing better energy at economically viable cost in the State was the priority of his government. Haryana will soon come out with a state solar power policy, he said.

At present, 195.99 MW of electricity is being produced from renewable sources in the state. These include 73.30 MW from small hydro, 107.20 MW from bio-mass, 4.14 MW from waste, 7.8 MW from solar and 2.74 MW from bio-mass gasification.

Erjavec said that this project will provide employment opportunities and strengthen economic ties between India and Slovenia. He said that the production facility will be addressing the problem of unavailability of power in many regions across India.
