The WBPDCL stepped into solar power generation with a 40 KW Rooftop Solar PV Plant at
Bidyut Unnayan Bhaban in the year 2014. With the success of this small venture, WBPDCL
has entered in solar power generation in a big way by installing rooftop, ground mounted as
well as floating Solar PV Plants.
Rooftop Solar PV Plants have been installed on the roofs of 58 buildings of its power plants.
WBPDCL is now the first power generating company in India to go fully green in operating
premises and is contemplating for further green ventures.
