The population of powerful mobile network technologies has increased in recent years also focus has been shifting from second generation mobile to third generation technology. This higher access rates have led to increased energy consumption in Base Stations (BS) and network densities have been constantly growing. This paper developed an energy efficient planning tool for analytical modeling of heterogeneous networks and observed the potential energy savings statistics when deploying heterogeneous networks. A model developed from WCDMA downlink equation was used in determining the energy consumption per unit area of the network.
