"My 3 (power, coal and renewable energy) ministries learned a lot about the power issues faced by the states and will address all such policy issues on a fast-track basis,” Goyal wrote on micro-blogging website Twitter. (Agencies)
Taking a leaf out of the Gujarat state's Jyotigram Yojana, which aims at providing 24x7 electricity to all villages in the state, Goyal said that his ministry's dream is to provide power to every household in India.
"We also understood the Jyotigram Yojana in great detail and will leave no stone unturned for our dream of 24x7 power, pan India in every home," he tweeted.
The newly-appointed minister visited Gujarat on Friday along with his team to understand the underlying principles from the state’s success story. During his visit, he met Gujarat Energy Minister Saurabh Patel.
Goyal, who took charge on May 28, had said that he would visit Gujarat and study the best practices of the state's model in order to turnaround the energy sector.
He had earlier said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, was able to turnaround the energy sector in the state from all perspectives - consumers, producers as well as in terms of transparency.
Gujarat's Jyotigram Yojana is a scheme to make available 24 hours three-phase quality power supply to rural areas.
Under the scheme, Feeders (a power line for transmitting electrical power from a generating station to a distribution network) have specially designed transformers to supply power to farmers residing in scattered farm houses.
The total expenditure on the Jyotigram Yojana scheme is Rs 1,290 crore.
