PLG Power plans 100 MW of solar power generation plant at Rajasthan, India

Mumbai-based PLG Power is in plans to come up with 100 MW of solar power generation plant. One of the biggest solar power projects under PLG Plast Ltd., is expected to start early this year 2011. The project will be put at Pokhran under the recent policy of Government of Rajasthan.

The project is in process to be approved by Indian Energy Exchange (IEC) and Rural Electrification Corporation to proceed further. The total estimated cost of the whole project is Rs. 13.50bn and is expected to start very shortly.

Punit Goel, CEO and director, said: “We have identified this region because of its favourable climatic conditions like very high ambient temperature, atmosphere and soil. This part of Rajasthan receives an adequate amount of solar radiation.” The installation of the project will be highly equipped with skilled labour and highly skilled man-power.

Government of Rajasthan recently announced energy policy on solar sector “Rajasthan Solar Energy Policy 2011”, which proved to be a gateway for manufacturers to set up a power project with a huge capacity. Under this policy the manufacturers are open to sell the generated power to any party or any other state than Rajasthan.

This will be a project after the commencement of 40-MW photovoltaic (PV) modules power project at Patan, Gujarat and 25-MW photovoltaic (PV) modules manufacturing unit at Sinnar, Nasik.
