Sustainability Beyond Carbon

Solar PV
Solar PV

It helps reduce the electricity demand/ supply gap that exists in both States, helping improve the reliability and quality of the electricity grid.  This helps economic activity in the area

It reduces India’s reliance on foreign sourced fuels and local fossil fuels, and reduces air pollution

Permanent and temporary employment opportunities for local skilled and unskilled people helps improve their economic conditions

It brings additional investment to the region and is contributing towards infrastructure development in the region

Generating electricity using renewable energy, it reduces GHG emissions as well as SOx, NOx and particulates associated with the conventional thermal power generation

It acts to promote the uptake of solar PV power and helps encourage others to develop similar projects
