How it works
The total installed capacity of the grid-connected to the photovoltaic power station is ~100MW. About 399,459 polycrystalline silicon solar cells with fixed brackets were installed. The electricity generated by the solar cell module runs through a header box, then to a dc-to-ac inverter, these inverters are connected to 35kV box transformers, and then transformed to 110kV through the main transformer before being delivered to Bulongji 330kV Substation. Finally, the power is fed into the Northwest Power Grid (NWPG).
Offsets Made it Happen
Without funds from carbon offsets, reliance on fossil fuels would have continued in the project area, and avoidance of significant GHG emissions reductions would have not been possible.
Other Benefits of the Project
The project is a clean technology investment in the region, which would not have taken place in the absence of the VCS benefits. The project activity will generate zero-emissions solar-based power, which not only helps to reduce GHG emissions, but also specific pollutants like SOx, NOx, and SPM associated with the conventional thermal power generation facilities.
