NTPC’s capacity for renewable energy has reached 2 gigawatts.

NEW DELHI — The renewable energy capacity of the state-run NTPC has surpassed 2 gigawatts (GW), as the largest power producer in the country transitions away from coal and toward green energy with a goal of 35 GW installed capacity by 2027. The accomplishment was accomplished by NTPC with the commissioning of a 92MW (megawatt) floating solar project, which is the largest project of its kind. This project is located on the reservoir of NTPC’s Kayamkulam gas power station, which is located in the Alappuzha region of Kerala.
The organisation now has 22 projects that have a combined capacity of 4 GW of renewable energy capacity that are being put into operation, and it has 5 GW capacity that is currently being bid on.
The solar photovoltaic modules that make up the floating project span more than three lakh square feet of reservoir surface area and are responsible for the generation of power. This amount of energy would be adequate to light around 26,000 homes. It will prevent the emission of about 173,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
