Prime minister Narendra Modi to lay foundation stone of 600 MW solar park in Jhansi


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of a 600 MW solar park in the Jhansi district of the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh on November 19. He will be visiting the city to launch several projects on the birth anniversary of Veerangana Maharani Lakshmibai. 

The mega solar park will be developed by state-owned hydropower producer THDC in a joint venture with the Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) under the ultra-mega renewable energy park scheme of the ministry of new and renewable energy. The JV company, TUSCO, will get central financial assistance at INR 20 lakh per MW or 30% of the project cost, whichever is lower, for the development of the internal infrastructure including the cost of transmission to the central/state transmission utility.

The park will come upon government land and farmers’ land on a lease basis in villages Sujanpura, Jaswantpura, Jalalpura, Pura, and Khadra adjoining Dhasan river in Garoutha tehsil.

NTPC prepared and submitted the detailed project report to both the Solar Energy Corporation of India and MNRE.
