NTPC to help ISA member countries set up solar projects

NTPC Limited is giving support as a project management consultant (PMC) to nine member countries of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) for the implementation of solar projects worth $3-4 billion.

NTPC will help set up 3,845 MW of solar parks and projects which would result in the generation of around 9,228 MU of power per annum. This would also result in saving 1,265 million liters of diesel per annum, and avoid 3.42 million ton per annum of carbon dioxide emissions.
