National Thermal Power Corp Ltd, the country's biggest power producer, said on Thursday it will set up its biggest solar power station of 50 megawatts in electricity-starved Madhya Pradesh.
"We are setting up our biggest solar power project at an estimated cost of around Rs700 crore in Rajgarh district. NTPC will sell the entire power generated from this project to Madhya Pradesh," NTPC officials said in Bhopal.
"The state government will soon sign a power purchase agreement with NTPC to procure energy from this project," they said.
According to them, NTPC has kickstarted the process of setting up five MW and 15 MW solar stations in Orissa, Himachal Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, but the company's biggest non-conventional energy project would be set up in Madhya Pradesh.
"In all, we are working on generating over 100 mw of solar power projects across the country right now," they said, according to PTI.
