The USP is its dual-axis tracking technology that has been developed indigenously, which is capable of generating 30 percent or more power than conventional solar photovoltaic ones mounted on the ground. In a move towards realising the broader objective, Yellow 2 Gen Energy Pvt, which installed the plant recently, has proposed to the Chandigarh Renewable Energy and Science & Technology Promotion Society (CREST) for innovative development of the land-neutral solar photovoltaic (floating SPV) plants. Jeevan Mohanty, one of the co-founders and Director of Yellow 2 Gen Energy, said,
The approximate cost of the 10 kWp floating solar power plant designed by Yellow is around Rs 12 lakh
Yellow’s design has dual-axis tracking, which leads to higher energy generation and makes it cost-effective
The government has earlier chosen Chandigarh to develop it as a model solar city and has an ambitious plan for deployment of 175 GW renewable power capacity by 2022, including 100 GW in solar energy.
