Power plants in India falter on green regulations
A staggering 90 per cent of coal-based thermal power plants in India fare unsatisfactorily on the environmental front, shows a recent analysis. While state-owned power generation companies are among the worst performers, plants owned by private firms have performed better on environmental and energy parameters. In a report released by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) the plants rated the best were owned by firms from the private sector. These facilities included CESC´s Budge Budge (West Bengal), JSW Energy´s Torangallu (Karnataka) and three from Maharashtra - Tata Power´s Trombay plant, JSW Energy´s Ratnagiri facility and Reliance Infrastructure´s Dahanu plant.
