Chhattisgarh to get India's first geothermal plant

Chhattisgarh has signed an agreement with the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) to set up the country's first geothermal power plant in its newly-formed Balrampur district, an official statement said Sunday.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the project was signed Saturday between the NTPC and the Chhattisgarh Renewable Energy Development Agency (CREDA). The plant will come up at Tata Pani in Balrampur, a district located in extreme northern region of the state.

"The power utility NTPC is expected to start the work on the project over the next two years once a detailed project report (DPR) is prepared. The geothermal generation refers to the  harnessing/exploitation of the geothermal energy or the vast reservoir of heat energy stored in the earth's interior," the statement added.
