Minister for Science & Technology, Sajjad Gani Lone today said the government has proposed development of one each Mega Solar Park in the desert districts of Leh and Kargil. 

"The State Government has signed MoU with the Government of India for the development of two Mega Solar Parks of 5000 MW capacity in Leh district and 2500 MW capacity in Kargil district," Lone informed the House in reply to a Question by Nawang Rigzin Jora.

However, he said the work on these projects has not been started as yet in view of non-availability of land and lack of proper infrastructure in Ladakh for transmission of power so generated from the proposed Solar Parks.
