If all goes effectively, within the subsequent 5 years, one to at least one and a half thousand megawatts of electrical energy can be produced from floating photo voltaic crops on greater than three dozen dams and reservoirs of Jharkhand. With the implementation of the brand new photo voltaic coverage within the state from this month, the state authorities’s power division has taken steps on this course. Aside from this, DVC (Damodar Valley Company), a central authorities enterprise, has additionally made preparations to arrange three floating solar energy crops with a goal of producing 500 MW of energy within the state.

Aside from this, there’s a plan to put in canal prime photo voltaic crops on canals as effectively. In Jharkhand, the daylight is vibrant for about 300 days out of 12 months and on this sense there’s a large potential for photo voltaic crops.
