NTPC’s 160MW Jetsar solar project now fully online


NTPC, India’s largest integrated energy company, has declared its 160MW Jetsar Solar PV project in Rajasthan is now fully commissioned, with its last-part capacity of 80 MW starting to feed electricity into the grid in the last week of March.

“Consequent upon successful commissioning and due approvals, last part capacity of 80MW out of 160MW Jetsar solar PV project at Rajasthan, is declared on commercial operation w.e.f. 25.03.2022,” it stated.

The Jetsar solar project is located in the Sri Ganganagar District. Its first-part 80MW capacity started commercial operation in October last year.

The Jetsar solar project is located on un-cultivable farmland in possession of National Seeds Corporation (NSC), a Central Public Sector Enterprise (CPSE) under the administrative control of the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare. By utilizing un-cultivable land for the solar power project, the project will earn revenue for NSC while generating clean energy for the nation.
