The project is expected to generate commercial savings of INR 250 crore, reduce diesel consumption by 190 lakh litres and offset 58,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially inaugurated the first on-grid solar project with an advanced Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). The Lakshadweep Energy Development Agency (LEDA) will now source its power from these solar installations, marking a significant shift from diesel-based energy to sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives for the region.

Developed by SECI (Solar Energy Corporation of India), this groundbreaking initiative spans Kavaratti and Agatti islands, boasting a total solar capacity of 1.7 MW and a 1.4 MWh battery storage facility located in Kavaratti. SunSource Energy has been responsible for providing Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) services for this project.
