Andamans to soon have solar-storage plants

The Andaman & Nicobar Islands, will soon have India´s first city-scale battery storage solar power plants supplying 24x7 power to remote locations. State-owned NTPC will set up a total 25 MW solar storage capacity on the main island of Port Blair as part of the Centre´s bid to rid the place of polluting diesel generators, its main source of power at present. The storage solar power plant comes in the wake of Petronet LNG´s ongoing discussions with the Andaman administration for a floating facility to import liquid gas for converting generators to the less-polluting fuel. The ministry of new and renewable energy will meet 40 per cent of the cost through grant meant for special areas.
