Developing 5MW On-grid Solar Project in Tanahun – 2016/17
WindPower Nepal prepared a desk study report for a 5MW on-grid solar project planned in Belchautara, Tanahun, which has been submitted to the Department of Electricity Development Board (DoED) for a survey license application. The project is being developed by a Nepali company called Solar Farm Pvt Ltd, with a goal to sell the generated electricity to Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), the state utility.
WPN had carried out a prefeasibility study and concluded that the proposed site is suitable for solar PV plant installation. With abundant land area availability and fitting topography, Belchautara Solar Farm has a capability of producing up to 11.3 GWh electricity annually from a 5 MW solar farm. By using sophisticated software and innovative technology available in the market, WPN engineers were able to harvest a significant amount of energy, and simulation through various software showed that the solar PV plant was feasible.
