NTPC to build Indias biggest solar park in Gujarat

NTPC to build Indias biggest solar park in Gujarat

India's largest energy conglomerate NTPC Ltd. has unveiled its plans to set up a 5 gigawatt (GW) solar park in Gujarat.

This solar park is expected to be the biggest in the country.

The plan of the solar park is a part of the NTPC’s aim to build 32GW of renewable capacity by 2032.

Also, the company aims to reduce the share of fossil fuels in its energy mix to 70% from about 96% now. 

Recently, the Central government has laid regulations to cap emissions from coal-fired power plants.

This have also triggered the NTPC to turn to green energy for growth.

NTPC is also planning to build a new 500 megawatt hydropower project in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh.

It is a part of PM Narendra Modi's target to achieve 175 gigawatts of renewable capacity in the South Asian nation by 2022.
