The government of Himachal Pradesh intends to set up solar projects through public private partnership (PPP) mode.

The move will provide clean power to consumers at cheaper rates and help in reducing carbon footprints. Mega private players and major Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) have assured to invest in the state in this sector.

Sutlej Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVNL) is setting up five solar power projects (SPPs), in Himachal Pradesh. The planned solar power project of 112.5 MW is being set up in district Una.

Apart from this, 20 MW SPP Bhanjal and Kadh in Una district, 20 MW in Fatehpur in Kangra district, 30 MW SPP Kolar in Sirmaur district and 12.5 MW in Rajgir in district Kangra are in pre-construction stage.
