First hydro plant in New Delhi

In an effort o tap into green energy, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) has commissioned its first-ever hydropower plant in New Delhi.

The plant will produce 20,000 kWh of electricity per year.

“This is the first plant in Delhi which will be run through hydraulic turbines propelled by treated effluent coming out of a Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP).

“The treated effluent here falls through the height of 4.8m which due to created pressure and velocity leads to rotation of turbine thereby generating power,” DJB said in a statement today.

The generated electricity will be utilised at STP itself and the plant will produce 20,000 kWh of electricity per year.

“It is a pilot project which has been set up free of cost. We are also exploring the possibility of replication of this ‘Green Power Generation’ at other installations as well,” the statement said.

“The use of fossil fuels leads to generation of carbon dioxide, which in turn leads to Green House Effect and Global Warming. However, no fossil fuel is being used in generation of power through Hydro-power at Chilla. Therefore, this technology is termed as pollution-free technology,” it added.
