Many of the remote and isolated villages in Ladakh are yet to be electrified. Due to its total isolation and distance, it is financially not viable to connect these villages to the power grid, owing to high transmission cost. Decentralised rural electrification is the most suitable and appropriate for such a village as it is technically and financially more feasible and is easier to install, maintain and operate.
Solar Power Plants were installed at Maan (8.64kWp) and Shayok (9.18kWp) in Leh district and Juldo (10.08kWp) and Tashi Stongday (10.08kWp) in Kargil district.
