Odisha Govt all set to produce 300-500 MW solar energy by 2020

Bhubaneswar: In the State Assembly on Tuesday, Energy minister Pranab Prakash Das said as per the estimate of the Centre, Odisha has a scope to produce about 2500 MW of solar energy.

"But it is not possible at the moment to provide solar energy to the people since the government will purchase solar power at a cost of Rs 7.25 per each unit and provide it through grid connectivity. Considering the prevailing cost, the government is now carrying out the process of supplying solar energy through Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO)", the minister said in his reply to a question.

"The Energy department has identified land through the Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (IDCO) to set up 150 MW solar power units. The department has set a target to produce about 300-500 MW solar energy by 2019-20," the minister said.
