Source-wise details are as given below: Source Installed capacity (in MW) Solar 397.84 Small Hydro Power 64.625 Bio Power 59.22 Total 521.69 As per Green Energy Development Corporation of Odisha limited (GEDCOL), Government of Odisha has proposed the following renewable energy projects:- 1) 275 MW Solar Park in Sambalpur & Boudh districts by GEDCOL. 2) 19 MW grid connected rooftop solar project on government buildings in 17 cities of Odisha by GEDCOL. 3) 8 MW ground mounted solar project on surplus lands available in Baripada, Jayanagar & New Bolangir EHV sub-stations of OPTCL and Mukhiguda & Manmunda power house of OHPC & GEDCOL. 4) 75 MW ground mounted solar project at Boudh, Bargarh & Bolangir (each 25 MW capacity). 5) Proposal for development of small hydro-electric projects at Kanpur (4.2 MW), Jambhira (3 MW) & Mandira (10 MW) at Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj & Sundargarh districts respectively. 6) Development of around 500 MW floating solar power plant on various reservoirs in the state with NHPC. (c) The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM-KUSUM) Scheme is demand driven Scheme in which participating States/UTs have to provide state subsidy upto at least 30% of the benchmark cost of stand-alone solar pump and 30% of the benchmark cost of solarisation of existing grid connected agriculture pump. Capacities under the Scheme are allocated on the basis of demand received from the states and target capacity available under the Scheme. Therefore, no statewise allocation has been envisaged under the Scheme.
