Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP), a unit of SAIL Ltd, has set up 1 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation unit inside the plant premises at a cost of Rs 6.68 crore. The system, which is in the final stage of commissioning, is expected to generate minimum 1.479 million units of solar energy per annum, RSP said in a statement today. It is also installing other facilities for production of green energy.
Two 5 KW rooftop solar PV power generation systems have already been installed and seven more such systems are in the pipeline. RSP is also in the process of setting up a 15 MW hydro power project on the downstream of Mandira Dam in collaboration with GEDCOL.
