Solar power generation
Sustainable Development Co-Benefits
A 5 MW grid connected solar photovoltaic power project in Nokh Village, Pokhran in the State of Rajasthan in Western India. The project activity is expected to supply 8,322 MWh of net electricity annually to the national grid of India (NEWNE).
The projects avoids the generation of the electricity through the grid’s typical sources: fossil fuels and in particular dirty coal. This renewable energy alternative reduces greenhouse gas production and supports the development of the nascent solar industry in India. Currently, solar contributes less than 1% of India’s energy.
The project has co-benefits like employment in the local rural community and has also contributed to an improvement in the local infrastructure.
