North India's largest floating solar plant in Chandigarh

Administrator Balwari Lal Purohit inaugurated a 2MWp capacity solar plant on January 23, 2023, with the aim of making the city self-sufficient in power generation by the Chandigarh administration.

An overview of the news:

  • North India's largest floating solar plant has been installed at Chandigarh's Water Works.

  • Apart from this, Balwari Lal Purohit also inaugurated a 500 kWp floating solar power plant in Dhansa Lake.

  • The solar plant with 2MWp capacity will generate 28 million units of electricity. Also, due to the installation of panels on water, this project will reduce the evaporation of about 382 million litres annually.

  • Also, a major benefit from this project would be that, due to the cooling effect of water, this project would generate more electricity than all other projects.

  • Both these projects are on water, due to which about eight acres of valuable land of the city has been saved.

  • The electricity generated from the solar panels installed on Dhansa Lake will be used by the Forest Department. The forest department will light up all its offices with the electricity generated from this solar panel.
