CleanMax Solar, India’s most trusted sustainability partner for the corporate segment has partnered with Banda University of Agriculture and Technology to install 652 kWp of rooftop solar plant. The project is part of SECI’s vision to solar power government buildings across Uttar Pradesh and was inaugurated on 26th September, 2018 by Hon’ble Shri Ram Naik, Governor of Uttar Pradesh and Chancellor, Banda University of Agriculture and Technology, in the presence of Dr. Surender Lal Goswami, Vice Chancellor, Banda University of Agriculture and Technology, Banda, Uttar Pradesh and among others.
The rooftop solar plant will be spread across 4 buildings on the campus. The project installed at the education institute is based on the ‘RESCO’ or ‘OPEX’ model which is investment free, risk free and hassle free; and will provide solar electricity at tariffs cheaper than the prevailing grid electricity tariffs. The expected solar electricity generation for this project is 8,97,600 kWh per annum with estimated saving on electricity bills of INR 45 lakhs per annum for the next 25 years. The plant will help abate 750 tons of CO2 emission per annum which is equivalent to planting more than 18,860 trees.
