“It has been 43 years since the 705 megawatt (MW) Badarpur Thermal Power Station (BTPS) has been generating electricity in the heart of the national capital. It has been nearly a decade since the plant has been underperforming, polluting and making Delhiites pay more towards their power bills.
The BTPS has not only outlived the 25-year shelf life of a coal fired plant, it has also stealthily and adversely affected the lives of over 1.67 crore people in the city. To mitigate the increase in air pollution, the plant was shut in November last year and is set to open on Thursday.” Hindustan Times
