NTPC has commissioned India’s largest floating solar PV project of 100 MW at Ramagundam in Peddapalli District in Telangana. The project is spread over 600 acres of reservoir. This would help avoid 4.36 million tonnes CO2e during the life of the project. The floating solar projects have great potential to save water by way of reducing evaporation losses apart from producing green power. It is expected that the evaporation loss is reduced to the tune of 70%. The 100 MW project would save 2000 million liters of water per annum which could be sufficient to meet yearly water requirements of approximately 10,000 households.NTPC has already commissioned 222 MW of floating solar projects and another 40 MW projects are in the construction stage.With the focus shifting towards cleaner sources of power globally and the Government setting a target of 500 GW of non-fossil capacity by 2030, NTPC has also sharpened its focus on RE. Accordingly, NTPC has also made plans for creating its renewables portfolio which could be as large as the thermal portfolio and the renewable targets have been revised to 60 GW from 30 GW by 2032. To achieve the set target, NTPC is setting up ground mounted solar PV projects, Floating solar PV, Wind and Hybrid projects.
