KOR Energy, a Delhi-based solar power developer, has secured contracts to build 2.8 MW of rooftop PV capacity across the state of Uttar Pradesh from four separate companies.
Two of the four arrays will be 1.2 MW: the first a rooftop installation at the site of Apollo Metalax Ltd., which is located in the Secunderabad Industrial Area-Bulandshahr, and an additional 1.2 MW install at Apollo Pipes Ltd., located in the Dadri Industrial Area.
The remaining two arrays, both 200 kW in size, will be installed at the warehouses of KV Aromatics Pvt. Ltd., and Hindustan Mint Private Ltd.,, located at Greater Noida and Moradabad respectively.
KOR Energy has confirmed that it will use REC’s Twinpeak modules for the arrays, as well as ABB inverters at all four sites.
“We understand that solar energy is the need of the hour, therefore we are constantly making efforts to educate people about the benefits of adopting zero pollution solar energy,” said KOR Energy director Sushil Kumar Sarawgi. “We are regularly propagating the advantages of solar energy in the industrial belts of Uttar Pradesh.”
According to Sarawgi, the arrays will be completed with the country’s Make in India program in mind, and thus will comprise solar components made in the country where possible. ABB currently has a large production presence in India.
