The Kerala government is planning to install 100 megawatts of solar power plants across the state in the next two to three years, following a government directive that requires utilities to provide electricity to at least 90 per cent of their households.

In an announcement, the Ministry of Energy and Resources said that all the solar plants were being installed at the time of the state’s energy and water supply in 2016.

But the power sector is facing a shortage of electricity as the power grids have been put in disrepair, according to the announcement.

The state government also announced that the number of solar plants would be reduced from the previous 100MWs to 50MWs.
