SOCIO-ECONOMIC JUSTIFICATION There are growing trends in setting up grid interactive power plants worldwide. In grid interactive mode the solar power can be utilised to its full potential. All the requirements are being fulfilled by the site conditions of Govt. Schools, in Chandigarh. Chandigarh is the UT which has no other source of power generation except roof top SPV power generation. This project will help in adding the power in UT grid thus indirectly will reduce the import of power from other sources.  Abundant sun light is available.  Grid availability is high.  Technical staff is available for care taking the technical things.  Round the clock security is available.  The project will be installed and taken care by the highly professional team of the CREST and UT. Govt. Department of Electrical Engineering.  The power produced by this project will be directly fed to LT side.  Bidirectional meter will be installed to measure the import and export of solar power. 9 BENEFITS FROM THE PROJECT Since, Chandigarh is the UT which has no other source of power generation except roof top SPV power generation. This project will help in adding the power in UT grid thus indirectly will reduce the import of power from other sources. POWER SCENARIO IN CHANDIGARH Union Territory Chandigarh is receiving power from different resources approx. 350 MW such as Bhakra Beas Management Board – 39%, National Thermal Power Corporation – 35%, National Hydroelectric Power Corporation Ltd. (NHPC) – 14%, Naptha Jhakri Power Corporation Ltd.
