Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) takes pride in the ownership of these two plants, with Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) skillfully provided by SunSource Energy. Renowned for being a leading solar power solutions provider, SunSource Energy played a pivotal role in shaping this groundbreaking project.
The Lakshadweep Energy Development Agency (LEDA) will now source power from these solar plants, marking a crucial shift from diesel-based power to a sustainable, eco-friendly energy source for the region.
Over its projected technical lifetime, this initiative is expected to generate commercial savings of approximately INR 250 crore. The reduction of diesel consumption by up to 190 lakh litres and offsetting 58,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions underscores its significance in promoting green energy.
Kushagra Nandan, Co-Founder, Managing Director, and CEO, SunSource Energy said, "We are immensely proud to have played a pivotal role in this groundbreaking project. It not only supports the energy transition of the Union Territory of Lakshadweep but also aligns with our commitment at SunSource Energy to advance sustainable projects that make a lasting impact and contribute to our country’s ambitious net-zero goals. We are delighted that Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. chose us for this project."
Shreedhar Singh, Additional General Manager, Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. said, "This project addresses the energy challenges of Lakshadweep and aligns seamlessly with the broader national objective of promoting green energy. We believe it will pave the way for more sustainable and resilient energy solutions for island regions across the country. We extend our appreciation to the Lakshadweep Administration and the Electricity department for their support and acknowledge the expertise demonstrated by SunSource Energy in executing this challenging project."
