State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals on Tuesday said it has completed two 100 KWp solar power plants in the BHELLakshadweep islands.“BHEL has commissioned two solar power plants of 100 KWp (Kilowatt peak) each in Lakshadweep,'' the company said in a statement.

With this, BHEL has commissioned 11 solar power plants in the Lakshadweep islands, adding over 1MW of solar energy to the power-generating capacity of the coral islands, the statement said. The plants have been set up at Chetlat and Amini islands of Lakshadweep.

BHEL had earlier commissioned solar power plants in the islands of Agatti, Andrott, Bangaram, Bitra, Kadmat, Kalpeni, Kavaratti, Kiltan and Minicoy, it said.

Apart from substantial fuel savings up to three lakh litres per year, the projects will greatly reduce the problems faced in the transportation and storage of diesel, besides safeguarding the ecology of the coral islands hitherto threatened by the use of diesel.
