First geothermal power project in Ladakh by ONGC

A geothermal power project of 1 megawatt is being built on a pilot basis by ONGC’s Energy Centre at Puga in Changthang area of Ladakh.

The geothermal project at Puga is the first of its kind in India and also geothermal is green and clean energy which is not affected by the weather.

The plan is to drill two wells up to 1,000 metres- one for the producer and the other for the injector- to utilise the geothermal energy. Also, to conduct a study to check if the hot spring is being recharged by glacial water to ensure that it remains a perennial source of energy.

In addition, the plan is to bring equipment at the earliest to complete the project work.
