Indian home minister Rajnath Singh has laid the foundation stone for 25MW of PV projects in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

These include a 17MW plant at Manglutan, near Guptapara Village and 8MW at Chidiyatapu in South Andaman District.

The solar projects were the first to be tendered by NTPC to be combined with energy storage – although storage is tendered separately.

NTPC has signed an MoU for a total of 50MW solar-plus-storage capacity with the Andaman & Nicobar Administration and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) in New Delhi.
