Hartek Solar commissions rooftop PV project for a hospital


Extending its footprint to the healthcare segment, Chandigarh-based Hartek Solar, the rooftop solar division of the Hartek Group, has announced the commissioning of a 50kWp rooftop project at Alchemist Hospital in Panchkula district of Chandigarh.

Based on the latest remote sensing technology that gives real-time alerts on energy generation and savings and equipped with all safety devices like walkway and safety lifeline, this solar plant at Alchemist Hospital will generate 72.5 MWh of clean electricity annually, offsetting 1,397 tonnes of carbon emissions, the EPC firm said in a release.

Hartek Solar executed the project right from installing solar panels and inverter to supply, design, engineering and commissioning. It synced the solar plant with a smart grid-interactive inverter system to enable the hospital to run its medical emergency services and diagnostic facilities without any glitches.

Commenting on the successful execution of the project, Hartek Solar Director and CEO Simarpreet Singh said, “The potential of rooftop solar in the private institutional category is immense, and we are going all out to tap it.”

Simarpreet said there is a growing realization among institutions like hospitals and schools about how rooftop solar can substantially reduce their electricity bills and provide a reliable and uninterrupted electricity source without depending on bulky inverters and diesel-based generator sets. “Going by the favorable trends, private institutions and commercial units will set the pace for rooftop solar in coming months,” he said.

“The tariff rates for rooftop solar work out to be 17-27% cheaper than commercial tariffs and this is what is primarily driving the adoption of rooftop solar in the commercial domain.”

Hartek Solar has installed rooftop PV capacity of over 40 MW across the industrial, commercial and residential categories in more than ten states in four years of its inception.
