Eco Factor: Power plant to generate 500MW of electric power from renewable sources.

India’s largest power generation company, National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), is planning to generate about 500MW of electric power from solar and wind energy projects in the Indian state of Orissa. The company has signed an MOU with the Orissa government in order to obtain approval for setting up the power plant.

The state coastal location will allow NTPC’s power plant to get ample offshore wind and substantial solar energy for renewable electricity. NTPC is also looking to diversity its energy basked from coal and gas to nuclear, hydro and renewable sources. By 2017 NTPC is further aiming to double its installed power capacity, a major share of which is expected to be generated from solar and wind energy.
