India’s border areas with Pakistan in Rajasthan would soon be illuminated with renewable energy as the state government will soon ink an MoU with National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) and Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) to establish Ultra Mega Renewal Energy Power Park, government officials said.
The park to be set up near borders areas will be of 8,000 megawatts (MW) capacity, which will comprise 4,310 MW of wind energy; 3,760 MW of solar energy and 120 MW of power from biomass. Currently, Rajasthan’s solar generation capacity is 4,883 MW.
The Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Limited (RRECL) would be singing a separate MoU with the NTPC and the SECI to materialise the GoI Mega Power Park project.
A senior official of the department, on condition of anonymity, said the Park will ensure uninterrupted power supply to the border areas.
