The solar plants commissioned at Dibrugarh (Assam), Gaya (Bihar) and Gondia (Maharashtra) take the Kolkata based module manufacturer and EPC contractor’s cumulative airport project portfolio to more than 4 MW.
The 923 MW grid-connected solar capacity—tendered under Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) Scheme—is to be developed using only domestically manufactured solar cells and modules. Whereas, modules for the 500 MW project in Maharashtra can be procured from either domestic manufacturers, or imported.
These systems—to be deployed in Aurangabad, Nashik and Pune—will have provision for mobile charging, transfer of automated meter reading and water discharge reading data.
The recently proposed guidelines allow electricity cost reduction of only Rs 3.64/unit for commercial and industrial consumers, which is not even sufficient to recover the capital costs of setting up the solar infrastructure.
Under the partnership, Magenta will install its electric vehicle charging solution ChargeGrid Pro at Lodha Group’s real estate projects in Mumbai, delivering installation to charging support, round-the-clock service, and maintenance support.
The US-based non-profit organization will use the amount to install solar panels in three schools of Maharashtra and also fund 300 solar lights for the students. Its partner in these projects, Think Sharp Foundation, will also use the power generated for digital learning tools and libraries.
Up to 70% of prospective customers have shied away from owning a rooftop solar system due to lack of readily available information on how to assess various solar options, says Saurabh Marda, co-founder and managing director of Freyr Energy – a Hyderabad-based rooftop solar firm that has completed over 1200 installations in just 5 years since inception in 2014.
Range anxiety continues to be an obstacle to electric vehicle take-up but the nation’s willingness to embrace car-sharing and other workarounds offers plenty of promise to the sector, according a World Economic Forum report.
Bids are invited to supply 10 sets of 1×5 MW or 2×2.5MW 3-phase grid-connected containerized power-conditioning units for a MAHAGENCO project in Maharashtra. The scope of work also includes installation and commissioning. Bids will open on October 10.
