Solar Photovoltaic

The northern part of the subcontinent, especially the Ladakh region, is blessed with an abundance of sunlight and high solar radiation. Harnessing solar energy into consumable electricity is highly effective and useful.

Solar Photovoltaic:

Potential in the region

As per a survey conducted by this agency we have estimated a solar potentials of 11,000 MW in Kargil along the road side/approachable areas

Installed Capacity

KREDA has so far installed more than 2000 kWp of photovoltaic alone excluding the Homelighting system


Under Ladakh Renewable Energy Initiative, a scheme sanctioned by MNRE GOI to minimize dependence on diesel in the Ladakh region and meet power requirement through local renewable sources, KREDA has been establishing number of SPV Power Plants capacity ranging from 25 kWp to 100 kWp in various villages and Army establishments, small Photo Voltaic Power Plants in various institutions capacity ranging from 2.5 kWp to 10 kWp. SPPs have been installed in nearly Twenty two villages, most of which are remotely located, and some Army establishments and nearly 64 institutions.


Future Plan

1.Under Roof-Top Scheme (Off-Grid), 400 nos. of Rooftop Photovoltaic Systems have been sanctioned and each would be of capacity 05kWp. The systems shall be installed in govt. institutions.

2.The prefeasibility report for 20 Meghawat Capacity solar projects is ready with KREDA. 05 Meghawat Solar Project shall be sanctioned soon. Survey and land procurement has been completed. DPR shall be prepared by SECI soon.

3.It is expected that the 2nd Phase of Ladakh Renewable Energy Initiative (LREI) shall soon be sanctioned to KREDA. Under which various hydro and solar projects shall be installed in various parts of the district.

4.Solar Home Lighting Systems of unknown nos. shall also be going to sanction in the coming months, proposal already submitted last year.

5.Solar Water Pump project and Solar Refrigerator Project shall also be intiated soon, which are parts of the LREI Project of the MNRE, GOI.
