India inaugurates governmental PV system


Lanco Solar installed the system, which was inaugurated by Smt. Meira Kumar, Honorable Speaker, Lok Sabha, in the presence of Farooq Abdullah, Honorable Union Minister for New & Renewable Energy.

The photovoltaic project, which was completed four months ago and is said to generate up to 400 units of electricity daily, was awarded to Lanco by the Punjab Energy Development Agency or PEDA. It has been described as a "showcase" demonstrating how renewable energy can be used to help meet India’s growing power needs.

Lanco is also working on a 35 megawatt (MW) project in the state of Gujarat. Having signed a power purchase agreement under the state’s power policy, the first five MW have already been installed.

Furthermore, the company says it is undertaking a 75 MW crystalline-based photovoltaic project in the Duhle district, Maharashtra.
