India’s largest floating Solar Power Plant to be set up in Bengal

India’s largest floating Solar Power Plant is coming up in West Bengal’s Sagardighi. This 5MW grid-connected floating solar project at Sagardighi Thermal Power Project (SgTPP) in Murshidabad is a new feather to Bengal’s cap. This floating solar plant with 5MW capacity will be the largest of its kind in the country. Previously, there was one at Chittur near Tirupati that had a generation capacity of 4MW. The State Government will be spending Rs 22 crore for developing the plant. It will be able to provide electricity to more than 1 lakh households after becoming fully operational.

The project had earlier got delayed due to Covid-19 Pandemic but now the ball has set rolling after the Cabinet approval. Solar Energy is one of the best sources of sustainable energy that is also pollution free unlike Thermal Power Projects that cause a lot of pollution. Bengal’s Solar Plant is an answer to the future need of power.
