NTPC commissions 240 MW solar farm in Rajasthan


NTPC has switched on its 240 MW Devikot solar farm in the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan. The PV projects were developed under the second phase of the Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) Scheme of the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, Govt. of India. 

NTPC won this capacity through viability gap funding (VGF) based competitive bidding conducted by the Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI) in 2019. The projects were set up by HILD Energy under EPC with land mode.

The projects employ made-in-India PV cells and modules as per the Domestic Content Requirement (DCR) clause of the CPSU Scheme.
