This Solar power plant is distributed over roof tops of BOP Shop and MM receipt section with 70 kWp and 30 kWp power respectively. The total 70 kWp Power is generated at PV panels distributed over BOP Repair shop roof top through 154 modules in 8 strings received in an invertor of capacity 50kW and 61 modules in 6 strings through another invertor of 20kW capacity. Simultaneously, 30kWp power will be generated on the roof top of MM receipt section through 92 modules of panels in 5 strings through a 30kW invertor. The complete solar power plant is grid connected where the unutilized power will be directly transferred to Grid.
Other than directly creating green energy by installing solar power plant, Team CWS Vadodara with steps like plantation of sapling by visiting dignitaries has always tried to promote green initiatives impacting the environment.
