Eight billion for domestic solar power plants

Cabinet approval has been granted to obtain Rs. 8 billion financial aid for the expedition of the domestic solar power plant project.

Under this project, the government intends to set up one million roof-top solar power units, said the National Policy and Economic Affairs State Minister Niroshan Perera.

The Cabinet paper was presented jointly by the National Policy and Economic Affairs Ministry and the Power and Renewable Energy Ministry while the low income groups would be granted loan facilities under this programme. Further, in order to minimise irregularities, Cabinet approval has been granted to limit the maximum capacity of each domestic solar generation to 50 kilowatts, he noted.
