The project was implemented by Greenko Group and promoted by Zuvan Energy Private Limited. The project activity is a new facility (greenfield), displacing an equivalent amount of electricity which would have otherwise been taken from the fossil fuel dominant electricity grid.
The project contributes to sustainable development in the following ways.
Social well-being: the project has generated employment opportunities during both construction and operation phases. The project activity has led to development in infrastructure in the region through new roads and improved power generation.
Economic well-being: the project is a clean technology investment in the region, which would not otherwise have taken place.
Technological well-being: the successful operation of project activity promotes solar power generation as a technology and encourages entrepreneurs to participate in similar projects.
Environmental well-being: solar, being a renewable source of energy, reduces dependence on fossil fuels and conserves natural resources which are on the verge of depletion. Due to zero emissions, the project activity also avoids significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions and specific pollutants like SOx, NOx, and Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) associated with conventional thermal power generation.
- 500MW of installed power
- 919,800MWh of green electricity supplied to the electricity grid per annum
- 887,800tCO2e emissions avoided each year
