SOLAR PROJECTS

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.

In the year 2018, 2 X 3 KW Solar Tree was installed at Bidyut Unnayan Bhaban.

Rooftop Solar PV Plants have been installed on the roofs of 71 buildings of its power plants. Total cumulative capacity of Roof Top Solar PV plant is 10.54 MWp considering all its Thermal Power Plants.
