APSPDCL is planning to setup Megawatt class grid connected solar power plants experimentally in 4 sub-stations in Nellore district. The solar power plants costing about Rs6.5 crore each will be coming up in Podalakuru, Kaluvayi, Udayagiri and North Rajupalem substations. The solar plants, if successful, will be rolled out to other substations and rooftops of office buildings under APSPDCL.
