Spanning across an area of 450 acres, the project is set up in NTPC’s thermal power plant reservoir in Ramagundam, Peddapalli district.

Set up at a price of Rs 423 crore, the solar photo-voltaic project will have 4.5 lakh photovoltaic panels, which are expected to increase in the future.  The corporation aims to establish solar projects across all thermal power plants in the country.

The NTPC has various solar power projects lined up across various parts across the southern region of the country, all of which fall under its plans to reduce its carbon footprint and expand its green energy production. The projects also give a boost to the country’s aim to achieve the target of installing 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022.

Telangana’s total renewable energy capacity amounted to 3,944 MW in 2019-20. Telangana is one of the few states that can be expected to meet their renewable energy targets for 2022 and the Ramagungam solar power can be expected to help the state reach their targets sooner by significantly increase the share of renewable energy in their total power generation.

Notably, India will soon also house the world’s largest floating 600 MW solar energy project, which is to be constructed at Omkareshwar dam in Madhya Pradesh and become functional by 2022-23.
