SRINAGAR: The SAC took note of the status report submitted by the Power Development Department (PDD) regarding development of hydroelectric and solar power projects in the state. In February this year, the SAC had mandated the PDD to execute hydro and solar power projects above 2 MWs.
13 Small HEPs of 2MW to 10MW capacity with aggregate capacity of 112.5 MW had been identified by JAKEDA for implementation through EPC mode under PMDP-2015. These projects are at various stages of bidding process.
The JAKEDA has allotted work for survey, investigation and preparation of DPRs of projects between 2 MW-10 MW capacities. The survey and investigation for 40 potential Hydro Power sites has been completed. The Pre-Feasibility Report (PFR) has been finalised and DPRs are under preparation.
