carbon project profile
Rajwakti Small Scale Hydropower Project
The project involves generation of electricity from water by the installation of 3.6 MW (1.8 MWX 2) run-of-the-river hydro electricity generation plant in the river Nandakini in the state of Uttarakhand. The electricity generated is exported to the state electricity utility, Uttarakhand Power Corporation Limited (UPCL) and subsequently into the NEWNE grid. The project displaces an equivalent amount of electricity, which would have otherwise been generated by the fossil fuel based grid.
