WBCentral Electricity Authority (CEA) has given conditional clearance to the Rs.4,500-crore 1,000 mw Turga Pump Storage Hydel Power Project in West Bengal's Purulia district.

"We have cleared the project and it is now pending environmental clearance," CEA Chairman S.D. Dubey said. "We want more such projects in the country for better grid stability," he said on the sidelines of CII organised Energy Conclave.

State Power Minister Shobandeb Chatterjee said the formal letter has not arrived. The approval is conditional for want of some more land which will be sorted out in due course. The state was planning to feed the pump storage hydel project with 1,200 mw solar power.
