The Shimla WtE facility, Himachal Pradesh, has finally started energy production from waste. It has been operational for almost four years now. The plant has been developed by Australian company Elephant Energy in PPP mode with Shimla Municipal Corporation. According to late-2019 information, SMC had previously terminated its contract with Elephant Energy due to the failure in completion of the plant.
The plant has the capacity to generate 1.7 MW to 2 MWel from 100 tons of waste per day. It is scheduled that electricity is to be fed into the electricity grid in the next couple of days, according to the report. INR 7 (EUR 0.082) per unit is supposed to be paid by the Electricity Department.
