New Delhi: The Delhi Cabinet on Thursday approved a proposal to shut down the Rajghat thermal power plant and to convert the area into a solar park with the capacity of 5,000 KW.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the government had closed down the coal-based plant in 2015 as it was a major source of pollution.

“The Cabinet approved the proposal to officially close down the Rajghat Coal Plant. The 45-acre area plant will be converted into a solar park,” he said.

“Delhi Government has been pushing for solar energy for quite some time now,” he added.
