By delivering electricity from the local grid, the Battery Energy Storage System Project will alleviate the issue of power outages.

There will be two 400 KW solar power projects installed in the Chamba district’s Pangi subdivision. The state-run nodal agency for renewable energy, Himurja, has received the land for the power projects. In the Pangi valley, Himurja has chosen one hectare for each project at Hillaur and Dharwas. About Rs 10 crore would be spent on the projects.

Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu today said, “The government has made a provision in the Budget to set up a solar power-based ‘Battery Energy Storage System Project’ in Pangi to strengthen its power supply system. This project will provide uninterrupted power supply to the people of the area even during outages and breakdown caused by bad weather and heavy snowfall.”

He said, “The people of Pangi have to face difficulties due to tough weather conditions, especially during winter, often resulting in power outages. The Battery Energy Storage System Project will address this issue by supplying electricity from the local grid.”

Sukhu said that the state government was utilising solar energy to minimise carbon emissions. “To make Himachal a green energy state by March 2026, the government has set a target to start 500 MW capacity solar power projects in 2023-24. Additionally, two panchayats in each district will be developed as green panchayats on a pilot basis,” he continued.

He said that the government was encouraging young people to establish solar power projects in the state with capacities ranging from 250 kW to 2 MW. The government would contribute 40% in the form of financial aid to these initiatives. These projects would sell their electricity to the state electricity board.
