World’s Largest Solar-Power Plant


Ladakh will soon be home to a 5,000 megawatt (MW) solar-power plant, the largest in the world. The plant is being developed by the renewable energy ministry and the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). This project will be located at Hanle-Khaldo in Nyoma. Power from this project will flow to Kaithal in Haryana for which a 900km line will be built along the Leh-Manali Road. The project focuses on preserving the glaciers and reducing almost 12,750 tonnes of carbon emissions every year. The project is set to be completed in 2023 and will cost 45,000 crore. SECI is also working on another 2,500MW solar-power plant project in Kargil.
