Ground Mounted Power Plant

A Solar photovoltaic power plant (MW scale), also known as a solar park, is a large-scale photovoltaic system (PV system) designed for the supply of merchant power into the electricity grid. They are differentiated from most building-mounted and other decentralised solar power applications because they supply power at the utility level, rather than to a local user or users.


The solar power source is via photovoltaic modules that convert light directly to electricity. While, the concentrated solar power is other large-scale solar generation technology, which uses heat to drive a variety of conventional generator systems. Both approaches have their own advantages and disadvantages, but to date, for a variety of reasons, photovoltaic technology has seen much wider use in the field.

Most Solar power plants are ground mounted PV systems. They can either be fixed tilt or use a single axis or dual axis solar tracker. While tracking improves the overall performance, it also increases the system's installation and maintenance cost. A solar inverter converts the array's power output from DC to AC, and connection to the utility grid is made through a high voltage, three phase step up transformer.







In order to navigate Clean Energy Transition in the State and promote Renewable Energy to reduce energy demand from Conventional Energy resources, JREDA Management Committee under Principal Secretary, Energy Department cum Chairman, JREDA on dated 21.06.2021 had given approval for installation of Grid Connected Solar Power Plant at Airports in Jharkhand.


JREDA officials visited the tentatively proposed airports and selected five airports, which are feasible & suitable for installation of 600 kWp grid connected solar power plant.



Sl. No. Name of Site Capacity (kWp)
1 Deoghar Airport 600
2 Dumka Airport 600
3 Bokaro Airport 600
4 Giridih Airport 600
5 Dhanbad Airport 600
