Arun Jaitley inaugurates Telangana solar plant

Defence Minister Arun Jaitley inaugurated a grid-connected solar power plant of 16 MW capacity at the Ordinance Factory in Telangana’s Medak district. He also dedicated a 9 MW capacity windmill project installed at Dammur in Karnataka at a cost of Rs 53 crore by Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML), a defence PSU.

Jaitley dedicated both the two projects through video-link at an event. The solar power plant at Medak has been set up at a cost of Rs105 crore by Bharat Electronics Limited. With commissioning of 9MW windmill project at Dammur, BEML would be able to meet 68 per cent of its energy requirement through it.
At the event, Jaitley also presented ‘excellence awards’ to various defence PSUs.
