14 June 2017 Current Affairs:

  • State-run power giant National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) developed India's first 150 kW canal top solar PV System on cooling water (CW) channel inside power station premises at its 2,320 MW, Mouda Thermal Power Project, near Nagpur in Maharashtra. 

  • Solar PV system makes use of side walls of CW channels as load bearing structure thereby significantly decreasing the cost of the civil and mounting structure. 

  • It also has several other unique advantages such as land and water conservation due to reduced evaporation, increased PV generation due to cooling and reduction in the dirt, leaves thereby reducing chemicals for water treatment.

  • The mobile based application uses WiFi sensors to track users in the vicinity on a commercial space, log footfalls and also out promotional offers to their app users.
