India : Telangana to Set Up Floating Solar Plants

Telangana State, which has implemented several innovative power and water-saving initiatives in the past six years, is all set to take another revolutionary step — setting up Floating Solar Photo Voltaic (FSPV) based power generation units on its reservoirs. Two organizations have already proposed a total of 1,000 MW of solar power to be generated on different reservoirs of the multi-stage Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS).

While the Hydro-electric Power Generation Company (NHPC) has proposed a 500 MW power unit on Mid Manair, Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) has submitted a similar proposal to the State government for the generation of 500 MW on Lower Manair Dam. The State nodal agency, TSREDCO (Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation), which initially submitted a pilot project to the government to set up a 100 MW floating solar unit on Annaram reservoir of KLIS, will be helping the NHPC and the SCCL in setting up the floating solar power plants by providing technical help and also in preparing the Detailed Project Reports (DPRs).
