India’s first 120 MW Vertical Solar Farm

Vertical Solar Farm

Dell Inc. is an American multinational computer technology company that develops computers, related products and services. They were looking to invest in clean green energy in their Indian facilities, and partnered with Tata Power Solar to integrate solar power in their energy mix.

Tata Power’s 120 MW Vertical Solar Farm

  • Dell is green conscious company, trying to generate green power wherever possible, thereby reducing the load on the environment.
  • At their facility in Bengaluru, they already have a rooftop solar power plant installed.
  • Dell had two objectives when they were looking at green energy, namely – power the office premises with renewable energy and reduce the usage of energy for cooling the building during summers.
  • Tata Power Solar offered to commission a vertical solar system, which would produce the essential clean and green energy to power their office and also cut-off direct sunlight from hitting the building, thus keeping it cool during summers.
  • This is the 1st time in India that a vertical solar installation has happened on an existing building.

Benefits Of 120 MW Vertical Solar Farm

  • Exclusively specially made stainless steel structures were used on the south facing panel therefore protecting the building from direct sunlight.
  • Reduction of heat in the building due to the shadowing benefits provided by the panels, helped in reducing the energy required for cooling the building.
  • The project powers lighting in entire cafeteria and basement parking. To maximize energy generation tilt was incorporated in the structures.
  • The project has empowered 30+ people by their training & development in management of a solar projects, who will now be managing this project locally.
