In Maharashtra, the first solar power-enabled Textile Mill in Asia is coming up in Parbhani district. The project, once functional, will provide jobs to many women in the district.
 
The Jai Bhawani women's cooperative textile mill will be the first in Asia that will operate on solar power. Spread across thirty acres of land the mill will process cotton to cloth.
 
Chairman of the textile mill Dr. Sampriya Rahul Patil said that the finest quality cotton will be procured from Parbhani itself. Parbhani is the leading cotton producing district in Maharashtra. Also, producing cotton is seen as a profitable investment because of which majority farmers grow the crop.
 
Ginning, pressing, weaving and spinning of cotton will be done in the mill. Dr. Patil said, the cost of the project is 100 crore rupees and with the operationalization of the mill it will certainly give momentum to the industrial sector in the district.
