Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches on-grid solar project with battery storage in Lakshadweep


Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, inaugurated Lakshadweep’s first on-grid solar project with a cutting-edge battery energy storage system (BESS) today. Owned by the Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI), New Delhi, the project spans the islands of Kavaratti and Agatti, with a combined solar capacity of 1.7 MW and a 1.4 MWh battery storage facility at Kavaratti.

SunSource Energy executed the project on engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) basis.

The Lakshadweep Energy Development Agency (LEDA) will source power generated from these solar plants, marking the region’s shift from diesel-based power to a sustainable, eco-friendly energy source.

SunSource Energy, a subsidiary of the 125-year-old Dutch multinational SHV Energy, provides solar-based energy and storage solutions to commercial and industrial (C&I) customers. Headquartered in Delhi NCR, the company manages the entire lifecycle of distributed solar projects, with a robust portfolio of projects deployed, contracted, and under development across 20+ states in India.
