As per report Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport unveiled its rooftop solar powered plant on Wednesday morning. Reportedly the solar plant has been installed across 8 rooftops and has been speculated to generate roughly 47 lakh units of clean electricity per year and it is estimated that 3800 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced annually as a result of the newly set up solar plants.



Accordingly “BIAL’s solar project was commissioned across two phases. During the first phase in 2017, 503 KW of rooftop solar, 2.5 MW of ground mounted solar and 425 KW of car parking solar power installations were undertaken. Further during the second phase, in addition to the 3.35 MW installations by Sunshot, BIAL purchased 20 MUs of solar power through open access from Bosch plant of capacity 14.4 MW solar power plant commissioned at Belagavi and BIAL has adopted a holistic approach and sustainability principles to ensure integrity of economic viability, operational excellence, conservation of natural resources and social sustainability”.
