School Building Rooftop Solar Power Plant Project
- Representative Participant
- Pacific Consultants Co., Ltd.
Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity
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
- 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.
