As a plan to develop Chandigarh as a solar city, installations will also be made at various important traveler’s destinations, that includes Sukhna Lake so that decorative lights could be run with renewable energy. A detailed project report (DPR) for transferring a sizable power load of Chandigarh on green energy has already been prepared by The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI).

As per the plan, a 25 Mega Watts solar photo voltaic (PV) plant would also be set up. As of now, UT has no electricity generation of its own.In its pre-feasibility report, TERI has identified 24 of the total 900 small and big parks being maintained by Municipal Corporation, which could be looked as potential location for tapping solar power.

TERI has recommended that rooftop areas of car parking lots in the central markets of all sectors could also be effectively used for this application. The parking lots of Sukhna Lake, Rock Garden, and Railway Station can be productive areas for setting up a solar PV based power plant.

A study of the climate, including the amount of sunlight, was conducted. TERI has recommended that rooftop areas of car parking lots in the central markets of all sectors could also be effectively used for this application. The parking lots of Sukhna Lake, Rock Garden, and Railway Station can be productive areas for setting up a solar PV based power plant.

The estimation of area and annual cost has been done by using the efficient variants of solar cell having efficiency of 14.3 per cent. The power plants of the capacity of 1 MW can be segmented in small plants of minimum 250 kW capacity but they should at one location. Hence, small gardens and parks are not considered in the action plan.
