KOLKATA: Foundation Stone for 5 mw Solar Photo-Voltaic plant of NTPC was laid at Village- Jhajru near NTPC Faridabad on Wednesday.
The 5 MW solar project is being constructed at village Jhajru near NTPC Faridabad on a 20 acres plot. The work for this project has been awarded to Eversun Energy Ltd andEnmas GB Power System Projects Ltd for main solar plant package and power evacuation package respectively.
This plant will generate 7.437 million units of electricity annually. This electricity will be equivalent to the power requirement of approximately 6000 households. With zero pollution, this plant will contribute about 6800 tons reduction in CO2 generation.
NTPC is venturing into renewable energy with an objective to broad base generation mix by evaluating conventional and alternate sources of energy to ensure long run competitiveness and mitigate fuel risks. In this endeavor, NTPC has already commissioned two 5 MW Solar PV projects each at Dadri and Partblair. Further, presently 85 MW Solar PV projects are under implementation.
