The state government of Jammu and Kashmir in India is looking to develop solar power parks in the mountainous region of Ladakh. The total capacity it aims to develop here is 7,500 MW.
Two solar power parks of 5,000 MW is being planned for Leh district. Another 2,500 MW is being envisioned for Kargil district.
The state Minister for Science & Technology Sajjad Gani Lone informed the state assembly that his government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Government of India for the project.
Indian news agency Press Trust of India (PTI) quoted Gani as saying that work on these projects is yet to start. Non-availability of land and lack of suitable infrastructure in Ladakh for transmission of power generated from the proposed parks are the problem areas that are being assessed as of now.
