Lakshmi Nair alias Saritha S Nair, along with a youngster, had visited Kinfra office at Kanjikode and site to set up a solar unit in 2012, said Kinfra sources. They said that Lakshmi Nair had demanded 10 acres of land to set up the solar unit for which they replied that there was no contiguous land available and it was available only in different areas.

However, they said that they had not met businessman Sreedharan Nair along with her. Sreedharan Nair had said that he was offered 10 acres by Lakshmi Nair adjacent to the proposed wind farm at the Kinfra park in Kanjikode.

Kinfra officials said that a large number of investors used to come and inspect the site and later follow up the proposal at Thiruvananthapuram. Inox Renewable Energy, which had been allotted 27.5 acres of land in the Kinfra park at Kanjikode for the wind farm has also been provided land in different places.

The land is under preparation and it is planned to set up 11 windmills at the site, each of which will generate 2MW of power.
