Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

A 186.72kW 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

156 tCO2/year
= PV generation (a) × Reference emission factor (b)
= 293.05 [MWh/year] × 0.533 [tCO2/MWh]
