 Nashik Thermal Power Station (NTPS), part of Maharashtra State Power Generation Company Limited, has reduced the use of the power in the year 2015-16 as against that used in 2014-15, helping it bag an award for energy conservation.

 
“The thermal plant saved energy worth Rs 5.79 crore in 2014-15, but the following year it saved energy to the tune of Rs 21.36 crore. This was possible with the contribution of employees and engineers who put in their best work to make the NTPS shine,” the Times of India quoted NTPS chief engineer, Pankaj Sapate, as saying.
 
The plant won the energy conversation award from Maharashtra Energy Development Authority (MEDA).
 
In its bid to recognize the energy saving initiatives undertaken by several private and public sector organisations, MEDA had organised the energy conservation competition across 23 segments of the industries.
 
Maharashtra government had commissioned the NTPS with the installed capacity of 980 MW from 1970 to 1980. Of the five units of NTPS, two units generating 175 MW power each have been shut down, while the remaining three sets that produce 210 MW power each, the newspaper reported.
 
 Despite completing their original life expectancy, the three units of the NTPS managed to secure the top position among the power and fuel savings units in the state.
 
Two private organisations also bagged awards in state energy conservation competition. While BOSCH Ltd, Nashik topped the energy conservation contest with 78.2 marks, Mahindra & Mahindra Plant Ltd, Nashik came in second with 73.6 marks in the automobile sector companies.
