The country’s Deputy Minister Ajith Perera said that a hybrid renewable energy park would be set up in Pooneryn in Jaffna district and bids would be called for in a few months for the plants.

The government is also planning to float a tender for 90 units of 1MW solar plants. Authorities aim to have 410MW of wind power and 410MW of solar power ready by 2020.

It has decided to add about 1,000MW of power using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel.
