Indore Get’s Its One Of Its Biggest Captive Rooftop Sola Pv Power Plant Installed By Ujaas Energy Limited, Under Capacity Allocation From Solar Energy Corporation Of India
From today the campus of SBI foundation “CHETANA” will be powered by green energy sources. A 66 Kw rooftop solar power plant (battery-less) is installed and inaugurated on the top of the buildingof SBI Chetana at Scheme 74 Indore on 30th of June 2016. The system is among the biggest CAPTIVE solar power plant in Indore. Speaking on this event Mr. Ujjesh Sinha – Director SBI foundation CHETANA said that SBI is not only pioneer in supporting, funding, promoting renewable energy in the country and driving the national solar mission but also taking major steps in adopting green energy and sustainable development measures for their installations. This is just the first step in this field. We are also planning to do rain water harvesting, use of bio gas and water recycling in our facilities whenever and where ever it will be possible.
The inauguration was attended by the senior officials of State Bank of India including Mr. Sourangshu Sen- General Manager – Mid Corp Reg. office, Mr S.T. Fokmare, Mrs. Sugandhi Iyer – DGM, SBI Commercial Branch, Mr. Anurag Mundra – Jt. MD. Ujaas Energy Limited along with other members of Ujaas Energy and SBI.
This installation has been done by one of the leading Solar Developer’s and EPC company M/s. “Ujaas Energy Limited” which has installed this plant in a short span very efficiently under the capacity allocation from solar energy corporation of India. The installation has been supported by Central Financial Assistance / subsidy of 30% from the ministry of new and renewable energy through their programme of solar energy corporation of India. Ujaas Energy Limited formerly known as “M&B SwitchgearsLimited” is the same company which has also given the state its first ground mounted solar pv power plant way back in 2012 itself. Continuously working in the field of solar the company has presently more than 125 MW of installations in state alone and several other MWs of large ground mounted and rooftop plants in other parts of the country for leading government, public and private sector clients.
He further added that this installation will not only help in the establishment of electricity bill savings but will also be contributing largely to the environment and society by supporting the reduction of carbon emission. With this small installation of 66 kw we expect to save 92000 kwh of energy and roughly 1 Lakh 23 thousand pounds of carbon emission and a saving of almost 46 trees per annum.
The battery less solar pvsystem has been presently operating in off grid mode as there is no net metering policy in the state. The state is lagging in the installation of captive rooftop solar plant in the time where the entire nation is aggressively increasing their capacities in captive installation. It has to be understood that when we install captive power source we help others to get access of power and support the ambitious programme of government of India of electricity for all. Mr. Anurag in this event said that he is also hopeful that the state will soon have a proper net metering policy which will help many captive rooftop solar power plants to come up in the state in both residential and non-residential segment.
