Tamil Nadu looking at the feasibility of setting up a floating solar power plant

In a bid to reduce evaporation of reservoir water and increase sourcing of solar power, Tamil Nadu is looking at the feasibility of setting up a floating solar power plant, Chief Minister K. Palaniswami said on Tuesday.

Making the announcement in the assembly, he said that the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) and another company will study the feasibility of setting up 250 MW floating solar power plant at an outlay of Rs 1,125 crore.

He also said the government will come out with a new Energy Policy.

Palaniswami said the state’s Solar Power Policy will be aligned with the Vision Tamil Nadu 2023 document that has set a target of 8,884 MW of solar power capacity by 2023.

The Vision Tamil Nadu 2023 was released by then Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa in 2012.
