Colville Lake Solar Project
Colville Lake is located north of the Arctic Circle and is served with a winter road that is open just a few weeks each year. LNG fuel is not a viable option here.
NTPC has installed a solar/diesel/battery system that reduces diesel fuel use and the associated greenhouse gas emissions. The hybrid system was officially opened in May 2016. This innovative project has attracted international attention.
