  • Huge scope of tiny thermal power plants

    Steam energy is coming back very fast as blessing for distributed generation.There is bright scope of establishing 10 million tiny thermal power plants in India. Capacity of most of such tiny power plants will be from 2 kw to 20 kw and rarely up to 100 kw. Liberalization of power generation has opened vast opportunities for small generation capacities in villages. Such tiny power plants will have ...
