  10. 10. CONSTRUCTION Before  The After width of the canal at the above location is about 4 m (at the bottom) and the canal bank is over 6 m; avoiding the immediate vicinity of the canal bank and keeping in mind the safety of canal, it was possible to install the structure with a span of 12 m.  But ultimately the structure was designed for 16 m wide so that the same design could be utilised for larger canal width in future.
  11. 11. WHAT IS UNIQUE AND NOTEWORTHY OF THIS PROJECT?  Putting available resources to optimum use i.e. use of Canal top to mount Solar PV panels which also eliminates the need of land to install solar PV panels;  Minimization of the transmission and distribution loss of electricity;  Water security;  Retard the growth of algae in the water;  Improve the efficiency of the solar plant and yield a higher electricity output due to canal water;  Saving of CO2 emission by 1, 280, 000 Kg per year.
  12. 12. FUTURE OF SOLAR ENERGY  The Charanka Solar Park is the Asia’s first Solar Park. The Solar Park will be established on 2,000 ha of arid land to generate to 590 MW solar power.  Gujarat Govt. is planning to implement Canal top solar power project this on 10% of the existing canal network of 19,000 kilometres and they estimated that 2,200 megawatts of solar power generating capacity can be installed. So there is immense potential for future expansion.  Gujarat government is coming up with new roof-top solar power policy.  New Solar PV Power Plants have been commissioned under its most discussed and successful Gujarat Solar Policy they are aiming 1000 Mwatt increment in capacity in next 5 yrs.
  13. 13. WIND ENERGY
  14. 14. INTRODUCTION TO WIND ENERGY  Gujarat government’s focus on tapping renewable energy has led to sharp rise in the capacity to generate power using wind energy in the last few years.  According to official data, wind power generations capacity in the state has increased a staggering ten times in just six years.  The Gujarat government has set out the following for the state:  Water pumping windmill-design, development, research and popularization.  Setting up to stand-alone wind turbine generators.  Setting up of wind farms for power generation.  Encouraging privatization of wind power generation in the state.
  15. 15. WIND POWER POLICY  Wind Power Policy - 2007  Amendment to Wind Power Policy  GERC Regulation on Wind Power dated August 11, 2006  Wind Power Policy extension dated 19.03.2013  Wind Power Policy 2009 GEDA  Wind Power Policy 2013    Dated 25th July 2013.
