After the ‘roof-top’ proposal in which consumers are encouraged to install solar panels on their terrace to tap solar energy, discom NDPL will soon set up a 50-100 MW solar power project in Rajasthan that will cater to its consumer base in the national capital.

The project is still in the initial stage, but talks are in progress with the Rajasthan government and the electricity board. NDPL CEO Sunil Wadhwa said three or four locations in the desert state had been identified to set up the plant, and that the company requires 500-acre land to set up the plant. A small part of the solar energy generated at the plant in Rajasthan will be for that state, but most of the power generated will be for Delhi.

The Tata-backed discom, which caters to north and northwest Delhi, is also planning to replace existing streetlights in Madhuban Chowk and Vidhan Sabha to solar-powered streetlights.

NDPL had earlier revealed plans to set up a 1 MW solar plant on the rooftops of buildings in a six-acre land at Keshavpuram and the project will be commissioned by December 31.
