200 MW Kasaragod Solar Park could provide relief to power crisis

Apr 13, 2015

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI)'s solar power parks, which are scheduled to come up in Kasaragod, could provide some respite to the ever-increasing power crisis in the state, especially the Malabar region. The project aims to set up solar park in three localities in the district, spread over 1,100 acres, with a total capacity of 200 MW, said SECI managing director Ashwini Kumar. The SECI has already signed two tripartite arrangements in this connection and the work is expected to start once the land is handed over to the implementing agency. While the first one is with the KSEB and Tehri Hydroelectric Development Corporation India Limited (THDCIL) for a 50 MW project, the second one, which is also for 50 MW, is with KSEB and Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA).
