NHPC Limited has proposed to develop an ultra-mega solar park with a capacity of 600 MW in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh. This plan was discussed at a joint stakeholder session held in collaboration with the National Solar Energy Federation of India. NHPC called for the cooperation of the Uttar Pradesh government and Uttar Pradesh Power Transmission Corporation Limited for the construction of the plant. It was also reported that a two-month survey and investigation of the topography and soil conditions will be required before leasing the land. The proposed solar park will be developed as a JV or an SPV of NHPC and the Uttar Pradesh government. The go-ahead for the project will only be given after assessing its viability of the project. The solar park is expected to be completed by the end of 2022 or early 2023.
