GMR Hyderabad International Airport (GHIAL) has commissioned a 5 MW Solar Power Plant for its captive consumption at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), Hyderabad. Situated close to the airport access road, the solar power plant has started generating around 25,000 units per day of pollution free energy and meeting the airport’s peak power demand during day-time.
The solar power plant has over 16,000 modules of solar panels, each having a fixed tilt for maximum sun exposure. The green energy, thus produced by this 5 MW solar plant, is equivalent to meeting daily electricity requirement for about 4,800 homes.
GMR Hyderabad International Airport is a joint venture company promoted by the GMR Group (63%) in partnership with Government of India (13%), Government of Telangana (13%) and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (11%)
