The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), Sri Lankas largest electricity supplier, has launched a tender for the development and construction of a 100 MW solar powered energy plant in Siyambalanduwa, Uva province.

The selected developer will build the project on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis, along with installing a fresh 132 kV transmission line. The facility will sell capacity to CEB under a 20-year power purchase agreement. Interested developers need to submit their project proposals by Oct. 21.

In accordance with a recently available joint study by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the Asian Development Bank, Sri Lanka gets the potential to deploy 16 GW of solar powered energy. It aims to cover its entire power demand with renewables by 2050.

By the finish of 2021, the united states had 434 MW of installed solar powered energy, based on the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Through its Soorya Bala Sangramaya program for solar technology, Sri Lanka hopes to include 1 GW by the finish of 2025.
