Bathinda To Get Three More Solar Power Plants Worth Rs 50 Crore

Taking yet another firm step towards decarbonising the agricultural sector by adopting solar power energy, Punjab Government led by Chief Minister S Bhagwant Singh Mann is all set to come up with three more Solar Power Plants of 12MW (4MW each) in Bathinda district, revealed Mr. Aman Arora, Minister of New and Renewable Energy Sources, Punjab.

He said that Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) has recently commissioned a 4MW Solar PV plant at Tarkhanawala village in Bathinda to meet the agriculture power demand. The power generated from the project is exported to the nearest PSPCL grid sub/station at Sekhu village. The project will generate around 6.65 Million units power annually.

The upcoming three 12MW Solar PV Power projects worth 50 crores are expected to be commissioned by June 2025, said Mr. Aman Arora while adding that Panchayat land has been taken on lease near the 66 KV Sub-stations of PSPCL at villages of Bhagi Vandar, Shergarh and Kothe Malluana in Bathinda district to set up these projects.

The New and Renewable Energy Sources Minister said that these projects shall demonstrate the concept of solarisation of agriculture power and shall provide the many benefits to the people in the State, besides supporting PSPCL to meet its power demands at a very low cost. The solar power being supplied from these projects to PSPCL in a long term PPA is at a tariff of Rs 2.748 per KWh, he added.
