Small Hydropower Development

Most of these hydro generators are sourced through Run of the River (RoR) which are solely dependent on the rainfall in the respective catchments areas.
New and Renewable Energy (NRE) Wing of Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL) will implement an aggregate of 7 MW Grid-Connected Roof Top Solar PV Power Plants for Social and Institutional Buildings in Assam under CFA Scheme of MNRE, Govt. of India through RESCO Model.
