In a move to cut the effect of evaporation of reservoir water and increase the sourcing of solar power, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami said that the state is looking at the feasibility of setting up of a floating solar power plant.

The Minister has made the announcement in the assembly, and said that the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) and another company will study the feasibility of setting up of 250 MW floating solar power plant at an outlay of Rs 1,125 crore.

Palaniswami also said that the state government will come out with a new energy policy.

Further, the state’s solar power policy will be aligned with the Vision Tamil Nadu 2023 document that has set a target of 8,884 MW of solar power capacity by 2023, the Chief Minister added.

Meanwhile, the Vision Tamil Nadu 2023 was released by the then Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa in 2012.
