NTPC commissions India’s largest floating solar PV project

NTPC floating solar PV project

NTPC said its installed renewable energy capacity has crossed 2 GW with commissioning of country’s largest floating solar PV project of 92MW on the reservoir of Kayamkulam Gas Power Station, Alappuzha District, Kerala.

This floating solar project, spread over 480 acres of reservoir, would generate electricity from more than 3 lakh solar PV modules. This would be sufficient to light around 26,000 households. Around 173,000 tons of CO2e would be avoided every year during the lifespan of this project.

More than 4 GW renewable energy capacity in 22 projects is under implementation while over 5 GW RE capacity is under tendering, NTPC said.

Work is under progress at Leh on integrated project for mobility where five buses would ply intracity using Green Hydrogen. At NTPC Kawas near Surat (Gujarat), the work for Green Hydrogen blending with Natural Gas (PNG) is currently under progress.
