EESL to implement country’s first decentralised 100 MW solar convergence project in Goa

Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has signed up with Goa to set up a ₹450-crore 100 MW decentralised solar convergence project to be implemented by the newly-formed subsidiary Convergence Energy Services Ltd.

Under this initiative, EESL will implement decentralised solar energy projects. Convergence Energy Services will install 100 MW of decentralised ground-mounted solar power projects on government lands for agricultural pumping, replace about 6,300 BEE star-rated agricultural pumps and distribute nearly 16 lakh LED bulbs for rural domestic households.

Going green

RK Singh, Union Minister for Power and New and Renewable Energy, said: “The energy sector and the electricity sector in particular are transitioning in an unprecedented way. With this programme, Goa can avail three major benefits through subsidy, increased efficiency of products and reduced burden on the environment. With this initiative, along with the Kusum Scheme, Goa is well on path of becoming a green State.”

“We are confident of achieving Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s targets of setting up renewable energy projects in the country. Goa is a small State and this project will show us how we can replicate similar convergence projects in other States.
