(MENAFN- IANS) Chandigarh, June 25 (IANS) Punjab Power Minister Harbhajan Singh on Tuesday said solar power facility of 50 MW installed by SAEL Ltd in Malout district has been synchronised.

Four solar power projects of four MW each to be set up were allotted to PEDA at tariff of Rs 2.748 per kWh. Out of which, the solar facility of four MW in Bathinda has also been synchronized with PSPCL 66 KV grid substation.

The minister said with the synchronization of the projects, the cumulative installed capacity of solar projects in the state has reached 2,081 MW.
