Mizoram government through its Power and Electricity Department, is planning to set up a 20 MW solar power plant in Vankal Solar Park, Khawzawl in Champhai district of the state. In December 2019, it has invited bids to develop the project.
The scope of work includes setting up the solar PV project, including the transmission network up to the delivery point. The selection of the project would be technology agnostic within PV technology and crystalline silicon or thin-film or CPV solar panels with or without trackers can be used in the projects.
Zoram Energy Development Agency (ZEDA) has been appointed as the nodal agency to facilitate and implement the state’s solar policy.
