How Mehsana Project is Reducing CO2 Emissions Equivalent to 17,820 Cars

CO2 Emission Reduction

Greetings, environmental stewards! Today, let’s embark on a journey into the realm of solar wonders specific to our diverse and dynamic country, India. Shift your focus from the financial advantages; let’s delve into the environmental superhero cape adorning solar panels over the rooftops of our nation. As ardent solar advocates at Soleos Solar Energy, we are proud to present our latest project in Mehsana, Gujarat. This project, called the Mehsana Project, has helped reduce CO2 emissions equivalent to 17,820 cars or 1,330,218 trees. In this blog post, we will explore the impact of the Mehsana Project and how it is reducing CO2 emissions.

Understanding Solar CO2 Savings

Let’s ground our discussion in a real-world case study: the Mehsana Project in Ahmedabad, installed by Soleos Solar Energy, boasting a capacity of 16.5 MW, or 16,500 kW. Every kilowatt-hour (kWh) generated by this solar system is a triumph against carbon emissions, contributing to a greener tomorrow while mitigating the city’s carbon footprint.

Solar Power vs. CO2 Emissions (Mehsana Project)

Understanding the carbon dioxide emissions associated with electricity consumption in India requires a nuanced approach, considering the energy mix and carbon intensity in different regions. According to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) report of 2022, the average carbon intensity for electricity generation in India hovers around 0.82 kilograms of CO2 per kilowatt-hour (kgCO2/kWh).

An analysis by the European Environmental Commission suggests that a single tree will sequester 22 kg (48.5 lbs) of carbon per year.

Mehsana Project in Detail:

– Total Capacity: 16,500 kWp

– Technology Used: 540 wp Bifacial Monocrystalline half-cut with TPSAT tracker

– Total Power Generation per Month: 3,465,000 kWh (approx)

– Total Power Generation per Year: 38,692,500 kWh (approx)

Mehsana Project Reduce CO2 emission

Carbon Emission Reduction Calculation:

1. Monthly CO2 Savings:

   – Carbon Intensity (kgCO2/kWh): 0.82

   – Monthly Carbon Savings = Total Power Generation per Month * Carbon Intensity

   – Monthly Carbon Savings = 3,465,000 kWh * 0.82 kgCO2/kWh

2. Yearly CO2 Savings:

   – Yearly Carbon Savings = Total Power Generation per Year * Carbon Intensity

   – Yearly Carbon Savings = 38,692,500 kWh * 0.82 kgCO2/kWh

CO2 emission reduction

The calculated carbon savings amount to 29,224,800 kg of CO2, or 29,224.80 tonnes annually. This is equivalent to removing 17,820 cars from the road for a year or offsetting the carbon emissions of over 29,224 tonnes of gas.

An analysis by the European Environmental Commission suggests that a single tree will sequester 22 kg (48.5 lbs) of carbon per year.

Trees Saved Per Year at Mehsana Project:

We find that the Mehsana Project’s annual carbon savings could potentially save around 1,330,218 trees per year.

Estimate Your Own carbon Emissions Savings

For those curious about their solar system’s impact, consider your annual solar generation and CO2 kg to visualise the positive change. In the case of the Mehsana Project, the 29,224,800 kg of CO2 savings translate into offsetting the carbon emissions of 1,614,739,500 smartphones charged or 518,100 propane cylinders used for home barbecues in the city.

Looking at the Big Picture with Soleos Solar Energy

At Soleos Solar Energy, we take immense pride in our local contributions and global impact. Our solar installations worldwide have significantly contributed to carbon savings, fostering a cleaner, greener future for cities like Ahmedabad and beyond.

As we celebrate the Mehsana Project’s environmental impact, let’s collectively recognise the broader implications of embracing solar energy. By harnessing the power of the sun, we not only reduce carbon emissions but also contribute to a more sustainable and resilient future for generations to come.
