Kathmandu: The construction of Nepal’s Largest Solar Energy Plant Project has reached its final phase. The project lies in Nuwakot. The project with a capacity of 25 MW aims to generate 15 MW by April but also targeted to generate 10 MW from March-end itself.
The 25-megawatt project funded by the government and the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA). The energy generated from the project will be connected directly to the transmission line. It only produces energy during the day. The World Bank has provided a soft loan of US$ 8 million to build the project.
NEA Managing Director Kulman Ghising said it has been some weeks since the Chinese contractor resumed work at the construction site. He added if everything goes as planned, the installation will be completed and the solar plant will start generating electricity within a year.
