New Delhi: India’s leading energy utility, NTPC Group installed RE capacity crosses 2 GW with the commissioning of the country’s largest floating solar PV project of 92MW on the reservoir of Kayamkulam Gas Power Station, Alappuzha District, Kerala.
Spread over 480 acres of reservoir, this floating solar project would generate electricity from more than 3 lakh solar PV modules. This would be sufficient to light around 26,000 households. Around 1,73,000 tons of CO2e would be avoided every year during the lifespan of this project.
