Chandigarh is an emerging Solar City with a target of 50 MW solar PV by 2022.As per CREST data 7.7 MWp of grid connected Solar has already been commissioned by December 2016.In this paper 1 MW gird connected solar plant installed and commissioned at PEC University of Technology which is the largest in Chandigarh is studied and its Performance is Evaluated using PVsyst software. The average global horizontal irradiation is 5.26 KWh/m 2 /day and annual average temperature is 20.9 degrees
