Cochin International Airport in Kerala State of India will be the first airport in the country to be using solar power or running its utility grid system.A Kolkata-based solar module manufacturing company, Vikram Solar, would be installing a 100 kWp solar power facility at the airport situated at Nedumbassery in Cochin, reports Press Trust of India (PTI).

“The panels would generate DC electric power, which unlike the general practise, would not be fed directly into the utility grid,” Gyanesh Chaudhary, Director of the company said.The proposed energy production would be at an estimated 148 MWh per year with a capacity of 100 kilowatts-peak (kWp).

Famous Jagganath Temple in Puri will also be installed with a solar power facility by the company.
