Chandigarh, August 13
A team from MST, an Israel-based company dealing in renewable energy, made a presentation before the Chandigarh administration for setting up a 250 MW solar power plant in Chandigarh today.

The administration has no power generation stations of its own and is entirely depending upon the BBMB and central generating stations like the NTPC, NHPC and NPCIL for meeting the power requirements of the city. In order to make Chandigarh self sufficient to meet its power requirements, the administration plans to set up a power plant of its own.

The team, comprising Dov Raviv, Roy Rosenstrich, Alexender Libin and Andrey Arkhipov, made the presentation before S.K. Sandhu, F.S.-cum-secretary engineering and other senior officers of the administration. The proposal for setting up the solar power plant using concentrated photovoltaic technology was discussed in detail. The team also visited the possible sites, including Patiala-ki-Rao and 
Sukhna Choe.
