A Photovoltaic Solar Power Plant was developed by B & G Solar Private Limited in Komal West Village, Kuttalam Taluk, Nagapattinam District, Tamil Nadu, India. This Plant is of the capacity of 1 MW and was successfully commissioned on 10th June, 2011. It is the 'FIRST" Plant in Tamil Nadu and at "All India Level" , under the Rooftop PV and Small Solar Generation Program (RPSSGP), under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) scheme, approved by IREDA / MNRE, Govt. of India. The average solar radiation for the site is 1950.2 kWh/m2. The Plant has been generating an average of 14.9 million units per annum (i.e. 1490000 kWh) for the past 2 years and 3 months of successful operation with a Plant Load Factor of 17.09%.
Details of the project
The EPC i.e. Engineering/Procurement/Construction for this project was given to TATA Power Solar Systems Limited. They incorporated 4400 numbers of 230Wp PV modules/panels of TATA BP make with an efficiency of 13.4%, ABB-Solar Inverters of 2 Nos. (500 kW each), SCADA system and other Balance of Materials in the land area of 5.5 acres. The Power Evacuation/Grid Tie-up has been done using 11 kV HT line, connected to Palaiyur Sub-Substation, Nagapattinam District, Tamil Nadu.

b) 700 kWp Photovoltaic Solar Power Plant :
d) 250 kWp Photovoltaic Solar Power Plant :
M/s. Saheli Exports Private Limited, one of the Group Companies of BGI, in addition to the existing 8.778 MWp capacity Power Plant, has proposed to install a 250 kWp Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant inside the premises of its 8.778 MW Natural Gas Based Power Plant in Komal West Village, Kuttalam Taluk. This Solar Power Plant will be run and generate the Power for the Captive Usage of the Natural Gas Based Power Plant and thereby reducing the Auxiliary Power need to run the Plant, in a clean and green manner. This proposed plant is expected to generate an average of 3.5 - 3.6 million units per annum.
