According to reports, National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ltd will set up its biggest solar (green) power station of 50 MW in the electricity-starved Madhya Pradesh.
“We are setting up our biggest solar power project at an estimated cost of around Rs 700 crore in Rajgarh district. NTPC will sell the entire power generated from this project to Madhya Pradesh,” NTPC officials said today.
“The Government will soon ink a power purchase agreement with NTPC to procure energy from this project,” they said.
According to them, NTPC has kickstarted the process of setting up 5 MW and 15 MW solar stations in Orissa, Himachal Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh but the company’s biggest non-conventional energy project would be set up in Madhya Pradesh.
“In all, we are working on generating over 100 MW solar power energy projects across the country right now,” they said.
