5 MW Solar Photovoltaic based Power Generation in Jodhpur, Rajasthan
The project activity consists of a 5 MW solar power plant at Bap Village of Phalodi Tehsil, Jodhpur District in Rajasthan. The project is developed by Sembcorp is one of the leading Renewable energy players in India.
Annual power generation from the project is expected to be 8,583 MWh/year average of the fixed crediting period (10 years), which will avoid GHG emission reduction from emission intensive power plants connected to the NEWNE grid (Integrated Northern, Eastern, Western and North Eastern Grid) by 8,177 tCO2e per year average of the fixed crediting period (10 years). The Project has also been approved under Gold Standard Mechanism.
Contribution of the project activity to sustainable development:
Social well being
The project activity generates clean power, without emitting any GHGs during its operations. Hence, it leads to a cleaner environment, reducing the adverse impacts of GHG emissions on the people. It also reduces a part of the energy deficit being faced by the country.
The project activity generates additional employment with hirings during the construction phase and existing operations. The project activity generates additional business for equipment suppliers, O&M local contractors, civil work contractors etc. It also generates additional investment for the development of infrastructure in the region like roads; communication facilities etc and the same could be utilized by the local population.
Environmental well being
The electricity generated shall replace an equivalent amount of electricity from the respective state grids, which are mainly supplied by fossil fuel fired power plants. Generation of electricity by WTGs does not result in any type of GHG emissions, leading to a cleaner environment.
Technological well being
The generation of electricity by the project activity will improve availability of electricity to the state grid and also it will provide more opportunities for industries to invest in such cleaner technologies.
