New Delhi: Distributed solar rooftop company Fourth Partner Energy announced commissioning of eight solar power projects with a capacity of 3,116 Kilo Watt (KW) in Telangana.
The projects have been set up under the 1,000 Mw grid-connected roof-top solar PV system scheme of Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).
The projects have been implemented across multiple institutions including National Institute of Technology (NIT)-Warangal, Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University, Central Research Institute for Dryland Agriculture (CRIDA) and select BSNL and CRPF offices.
The scheme provides for government offices to switch to solar power at zero capital costs and avail electricity at a flat rate of Rs 3.14 per unit for 25 years.
“These projects will not just result in cost savings for clients but also cut carbon emissions by around 4,500 tons annually, equivalent to planting over 2 lakh trees,” said Vivek Subramanian, Co-Founder & ED, Fourth Partner Energy.
The company said it has so far commissioned 40 projects in Telangana with an installed capacity of 9,000 KW.
Overall, under SECI’s 1,000 MW rooftop scheme, the company has executed projects of 13 Mw across 32 sites in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha.
The company currently has an installed capacity of 160 MW across 23 states and is targeting scaling its capacity to 400 MW this financial year.
