According to sources in the Power Department, the first one would come up in Palakkad within six months. The rest of the projects would be established within a two-year period. The on-grid solar project proposal is the first of its kind to come up in the State. The proposal had figured in the Emerging Kerala event. Later, the Korean team made a follow-up visit leading to the proposal coming up before the Cabinet. Sources in the solar power industry point out that it will require five acres to set up a solar power plant of one MW. However, the total cost of the 330-MW combined generation proposal is not known, with government sources pointing out that the details will be worked out after the MoU is signed.
