Nepal's largest solar plant being constructed in Nuwakot district has generated 10 more megawatt (MW) of power. The project with a capacity of 25MW plant had produced 1.25MW power some eight months ago.

Chief of Project Bikash Raghubansi said that 8.75MW of solar power was generated recently and was linked it to the national power grid after the successful test transmission. Of the seven blocks of the project, power is now generated from two of the solar panels and is connected to the national transmission line through the national grid of Devighat Hydropower Centre. 

The project said that five more megawatt of solar power would be generated within some days. 

For the power generation, construction works are moving ahead smoothly including installation of panels and clearing the site. 

Likewise, Project Chief Raghubansi has committed to completing the entire project in the coming six months.

The project is being developed with the joint investment of the Government of Nepal and the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA). Likewise, the project has received $ 30.8 million in loan assistance from the World Bank under the Grid Solar and Energy Efficiency Programme.
