Solar Power Company 94MW Project(ID: 103000000005175)
Solar Power Company Limited has constructed solar photovoltaic (PV) plants to supply clean renewable electricity to the Thailand grid.
The sites of the Solar Power Company PV plants are located in the Provinces of Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat), Sakon Nakhon, Nakon Phanom, Loei and Khon Kaen in North Eastern Thailand.
The project is expected to yield an electricity production of approximately 142,944 MWhe (in the first year of crediting) from 97.98 MW DC of PV capacity at sixteen sites.
Electricity produced by the project activity would otherwise have involved the release of carbon dioxide from the combustion of fossil fuels in the power plants connected to the Thailand national grid.
Over 90% of electricity consumed in Thailand’s grid is supplied by fossil fuel fired power plants, which emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
When fully operational, the project will result in the reduction of 57,988 tCO2e per year.
