Host country: Maldives JCM Model Project

School Building Rooftop Solar Power Plant Project

Project implementer:(Japan) Pacific Consultants Co., Ltd., InterAct Inc. (Maldives) Villa Educational Services Private Limited

Overview of GHG emissions reductions project

A 185kW grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) system is installed on the rooftops of school buildings. Uses high quality PV modules of a Japanese manufacturer and general-purpose inverters with easy maintenance suitable for small-scale applications. The power generated is normally consumed in-house. When there is surplus power, it is supplied to the grid.   Introduction of the PV system will contribute to the carbon neutral target of the Government of Maldives by off-setting the grid power from diesel.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

216 tCO2/year

  • CO2 emission reduction
    = PV generation (a) × Grid emission factor (b)
    = 270.1 MWh/year × 0.8 tCO2/MWh
    (a) Project’s electricity generation : 270.1MWh/year
    (b) Grid emission factor: 0.8tCO2/MWh
    The estimation assumes that all electricity generated by the project replaces grid electricity.
