In In­dia, the Na­tional Ther­mal Power Cor­po­ra­tion (NTPC) is set­ting up two so­lar stor­age plants with a to­tal ca­pac­ity of 25 megawatts at Port Blair, the cap­i­tal city of the An­daman and Ni­co­bar Is­lands, lo­cated in the Bay of Ben­gal, In­dia. Set­ting up large-sized so­lar power plants will help gen­er­ate suf­fi­cient power to sup­ply to re­mote lo­ca­tions that use diesel-gen­er­ated elec­tric­ity, a ma­jor source of pol­lu­tion in the area. Un­der the gov­ern­ment’s anti-pol­lu­tion drive, the NTPC will set up 50 so­lar plants across the coun­try by June 2018.
