Shimla, 15th February, 2023. The proposal of the State Government to invest in Solar Power will provide much awaited end results when it comes to conservation of the pristine environment of the State.

Big private players and major Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) of the country have assured  to  invest in the State in this vital sector.

A major PSU of the country, Sutlej Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (SJVNL) is coming up with five Solar Power Projects (SPPs), in Himachal Pradesh. Thaplan, Solar Power Project (SPP) of 112.5 MW is being set up in district Una.
