<p>Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Shivani Jaswal, Municipal Councilor Vs State of Punjab dated 31/10/2019 regarding pollution of river Satluj at Nangal, District Ropar, Punjab due
The All Indian Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) has urged the Punjab Government to not hand over the proposed 264 MW Gidderbaha Thermal Plant to the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). According to the engineers, NTPC allows utilisation of just 50 per cent of the power produced to the state and the rest 50 percent is distributed to other states.
Ropar: The biomass power plants, running in the state, are incurring losses due to lack of fuel, security and disparity in the power tariffs between different plants. Punjab has two kinds of plants including independent power producing (IPP) plants and the co-generation plants. The IPP are given the rights to produce power only.
