Secretary of State Administration Council Lt-Gen Aung Lin Dwe delivers speech at launching of 30-megawatt Thapyaywa Solar Power Plant in Thazi Township.

The 30-megawatt Thapywa Solar Power Plant project in Mandalay Region, which was completed by the Ministry of Electricity and Energy, was launched yesterday morning at the project area near Thapyaywa Solar Power Plant in Thazi Township.
The 30-megawatt Thapyaywa Solar Power Plant project was implemented by Clean Power Energy (CPE) Co., Ltd under the Build Operate Own system.
On the occasion, Secretary of the State Administration Council Lt-Gen Aung Lin Dwe said as Myanmar is rich in renewable energy sources such as hydropower, solar and wind power, it will make full use of the advantages provided by the nature and build solar power plants. Due to the need for many acres of land in implementing solar power plants, plans are underway to implement these projects in difficult-to-cultivate areas and in the tropics under the guidance of the State Administration Council Chairman, he said. Plans are also underway to implement floating solar plants and solar projects to be built on other land, he added.
The Thapyaywa Solar Power Plant project is the second project completed in Myanmar, which will generate more than 200,000 kilowatt-hours electricity per day and 70.599 million kilowatt-hours per year, and the generated electricity will be fed to the national grid through Thapyaywa Main Station.
At present, out of 10.9 million households in the country, about 6.6 million households have been supplied with electricity by the national grid and 61% of the total households have been supplied with electricity. The government is planning to provide 100% electricity to the whole country by 2030, he added.
The Secretary of the State Administration Council and party inspected the state of solar power generation and transmission to the national grid.—MNA
