This project had been postponed from its original schedule by a year.
The revised version of the plan now incorporates the amount of electricity to be generated by these plants totalling 1,933 megawatts from 2020 to 2024. Last December, the National Power Policy Committee had approved the project in the form of very small power plant, with a capacity not exceeding 10MW.
Under the scheme, the government will purchase 700MW between 2020 and 2022 from community based plants.
