This one-mega watt plant is designed to produce 1.58 million units of electricity annually, sufficient to light more than 1000 homes.
The plant has been installed by Tata BP Solar and consists of more than 5500 solar photovoltaic panels made of crystalline silicon which will absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity which will be directly fed into the main grid line of NDPL.
The power generated from this plant will be clean and green since there is no pollution of any kind in generating solar photovoltaic (PV) power. The panels are designed to work diligently and silently for 25 years.
The DC power generated by the solar panels is converted into AC by inverters and fed into the power grid via transformers.
While inaugurating, Sheila Dikshit said that it is a a small but very significant step towards adopting a low carbon lifestyle to mitigate climate change. The Chief Secretary, Delhi, Rakesh Mehta, and the Secretary, Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Deepak Gupta, were also present on the occasion.
