6 MW model solar power plant commissioned in Neemrana

The country’s first one MW smart micro grid demonstration project (off-grid) that uses Japanese technology to integrate solar power with diesel generators to provide reliable green energy supply for industrial use, along with a 5MW model solar power plant, was inaugurated in Neemrana.

DMICDC Neemrana Solar Power Company Limited (DNSPCL), a wholly owned subsidiary of DMICDC, is managing the project, that is spread over an area of 36 acres of land allocated by the Rajasthan State Industrial Development & Investment Corporation (RIICO) in the Japanese Zone, Neemrana.

Speaking on the occasion, Ramesh Abhishek, Secretary, Department of Industrial Promotion and Policy (DIPP), said, “We deeply appreciate the Japanese Government’s assistance in setting up the plant and will look to execute more such projects along the industrial corridors and manufacturing zones that we are developing.”

Kenji Hiramatsu, the Ambassador of Japan to India, said, “This project is a symbol of strategic partnership between the two countries. The DMIC itself is a unique initiative under this partnership. I am delighted to witness the commissioning of this project using the latest technology from Japan, contributing to India in the field of energy, here in Neemrana.”
