Solar power plant at Kolkata airport ready.
The Kolkata airport is set to start using green energy for its day-to-day operations, as its ground-mounted, grid-connected solar plant is ready for commissioning.

The 15 MW plant, capacity-wise the largest among all the AAI airports across the country, is slated to be inaugurated by Union Minister for Civil Aviation Ashok Gajapathi Raju on Tuesday.

“Once the solar plant becomes operational, we will be able to cut down on carbon emission and at the same time do some cost-cutting,” S Raheja, Member (Planning), Airports Authority of India (AAI), told PTI. The solar power plant will be able to meet the power requirement of the terminal building at the etaji Subhas Chandra Bose International (NSCBI) Airport here, which is around 10-11 MW a day, Raheja said.

Airport director Atul Dixit said the solar panels have been installed on 67.5 acres of land in the operational area of the airport. The plant will generate 1.35 million units per month and this will reduce the AAI’s power bill by around 1.20 crore a month, he added.

Only two other AAI airports have ground-mounted, grid-connected solar plant -- Chandigarh (3 MW) and Jaipur (1.8 MW).
