SunSource Energy bags 6-MW floating solar plus storage project in Andaman and Nicobar islands

SunSource Energy, a Noida-based distributed solar energy firm, on Friday said it would be developing a 4 megawatt (MW) grid-connected floating solar photovoltaic power project, along with 2 MW battery storage system (BESS) in Andaman and Nicobar islands.

It added that once commissioned, it would be one of India’s largest floating plus storage projects in Andaman and would offset about 8,112 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually by reducing the region’s reliance on diesel for electricity.

The project will be situated at the reservoir of Kalpong river, Kalpong Hydroelectric Project Dam, Diglipur in North Andaman.

“In order to reduce the dependency on diesel for electricity, which is getting a price hike every now and then, adapting to solar will lead to even higher energy cost savings and contribution to a sustainable future,” the firm said in a press release.

The company would sign a power purchase agreement for a 25-years period with the Electricity Department of the Andaman and Nicobar administration.
