The country's 'biggest' 25 megawatts solar plant in Nuwakot has been connected to the national transmission line.
Constructed by the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), the project was completed three and half years. Its foundation stone was laid on April 27, 2018.
The project successfully tested power production 15 days ago.
"The power production test took place for consecutive two weeks. It was a success. More than 25 megawatts of electricity is being generated due to favourable weather," said Project Chief Bikash Raghubanshi.
The generated power from the project has been connected to the national transmission line through the Devighat Hydropower Centre in Bidur Municipality-6.
The plant that lies in Bidur-6 and Bidur-12 was contracted on 17 May, 2017, to Risen Energy, a Chinese company, with a completion target within one year.
However, there had been a delay in the project due to a dilly-dallying in getting the project design passed, it has been said.
As a result, the company started the construction work in 2076 BS. The solar plant is the country's 'model' project, claimed the NEA. - RSS
