NHPC is planning to develop a solar park of around 600 MW capacity in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022 or beginning of 2023. It is proposed to be developed in a joint venture with the UP government or special purpose vehicle mode. The proposed site is an island with Ghaghra river flowing from both its sides. The nearest 400 kV substations are at Kasara in Mau and Rasra in Balia, about 45 km from the site. The final decision for setting up the project would be taken after assessing the viability of the project.
