In this work, we consider downlink transmission in cellular networks where we target to reduce the energy consumption by switching off some base stations by such a way that the distribution of SINR remains unchanged. This is a mean of green networking in cellular networks in downlink consideration. This paper analyzes for line and plane cases, the gain in power consumption obtained after switching off base stations. By computations we observe that the more the operational cost the more the gain in power consumption.
