Prime Minister Narendra Modi lays foundation stone for 22 MWp floating solar plant in Himachal Pradesh


Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for SJVN’s 15 MW/22 MWp floating solar project at Nangal Pond in Himachal Pradesh. The plant, purportedly North India’s largest floating solar power plant, will be executed by Hartek Solar, Power, and Renewable Infrastructure, a unit of Hartek Group, on a turnkey basis.

The project cost is estimated at INR 100 core. It is said to be India’s first downstream solar installation on the Bhakra-Nangal Dam, and is expected to save close to 6,57,795 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually and produce over 33 million units of electricity per year.

In a separate development, NTPC Green Energy Ltd (NGEL), an arm of NTPC Ltd, has signed a joint venture agreement with Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd (UPRVUNL) for the development of renewable power parks and projects in Uttar Pradesh. The RE power generated from the proposed JV shall meet the renewable generation obligation (RGO) of the UPRVUNL, stated NYPC.
