SunSource Energy has won a 1.95 MW solar project with 2.15 MWh battery energy storage in the union territory of Lakshadweep in an auction conducted by Solar Energy Corporation of India. The scope of work includes design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning of the plants along with their asset management for ten years. The commissioning period for the project is twelve months from the award of the contract.

Once commissioned, it will be the largest solar + storage project in Lakshadweep and will power its four different islands Agatti, Kavaratti, BangaRam, and Thinnakara.

Due to its remote location in the Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep doesn’t have the national grid connectivity and relies on expensive diesel-based power. This solar + storage project is expected to significantly reduce the diesel consumption of the four islands, and lower its existing electricity cost while offsetting millions of kg of CO2 emission over its lifetime by providing clean and reliable energy.
