RIL to ‘Solar Power’ Common Wealth Games 2010
 
RIL Solar Group has installed 100% of the solar PV power generating equipment for the Commonwealth Games 2010.
 
Solar energy initiative of Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), RIL Solar Group, has implemented and commissioned India’s first 1MW solar plant on the roof of the Thyagaraj Stadium in New Delhi. The Thyagaraj Stadium is planned to be a model ‘Green’ stadium and will host Netball in the upcoming Common Wealth Games.
 
RIL Solar Group has also implemented power plants in the R K Khanna Tennis Complex as also solar LED street lights and garden lights in the Commonwealth Games Village. With these, RIL Solar Group has installed 100% of the solar PV power generating equipment for the Commonwealth Games 2010. The entire solar initiative is one of the major initiatives to compensate for CO2 emissions to be released through the game.
 
According to the company, RIL Solar Group installed and commissioned the country’s first 1MW solar plant in a record duration of less than 3 months. The power plant is expected to generate around 1.4 million units of electricity per year. It would cater to the power requirements of the stadium and the surplus would be fed to the grid at 11KV. The solar power generated through 1 MW solar PV power plant at the Thyagaraj Stadium is expected to result in emissions reduction of more than 1200 tonnes of CO2 per year.
 
The Group has also implemented three 2.6 KWp solar PV power plants on the roof of individual tennis courts in the R K Khanna Tennis Complex, which will play host to the tennis event during the games. Further, there are 34 back-up solar PV systems of 3 KWp each along with 180 solar LED street lights and 500 garden lights in the Commonwealth Games Village which will house athletes, coaching and support staff.
 
“We have always believed that the renewable energy space is a natural extension of our strengths in the conventional energy platform. The nature of technical expertise and project execution demonstrated in developing the solar power infrastructure is a defining achievement for our Solar Group. We will continue our efforts in research, understanding and scaling up the deployment of these environment friendly sources of energy”, Mukesh Ambani, Chairman & Managing Director, Reliance Industries Ltd commented.
