The aggregate installed power capacity of Sona I is slated to be 1MW, constructed from a configuration of 1818 550W Canadian solar PV panels, complemented by 5 Huawei Sun2000-215KTL solar inverters.

Additionally, the infrastructure will feature a 1250kVA power transformer, meticulously designed to facilitate the grid connection via the 20kV medium voltage line.

The photovoltaic panels will rest on a metal structure anchored into the ground through percussion, eliminating the need for cement or other materials that could impact soil quality.

The transformer station will be housed within a 20-foot container, necessitating a 20m2 foundation for support.

A protective perimeter for the photovoltaic park will consist of a 2-meter tall fence, fortified with three rows of barbed wire to deter potential intrusion. As an added security measure, lighting poles will be positioned every 10 meters, each equipped with high-performance video cameras featuring night vision capabilities.

Sona I is designed to occupy 12,500m2, meticulously planned for scalability. Annually, the park is projected to generate 1250MWh of energy, contributing to the national grid through energy sales.
