Delhi's India International Centre has announced that it has gone green with the inauguration of a 70-KW solar rooftop plant that will help it save 63 tonne carbon emissions and up to Rs 11 lakh in power bill per annum. The solar plant was set up by the Tata Solar Power under its corporate social responsibility.
"The rooftop solar plant will be operated by Tata Solar Power free of cost for next five years," Tata Power Chief Executive Officer Praveer Sinha said at a ceremony to inaugurate the plant.
"The project involves energy efficiency of 90.000 KWh yearly, reducing carbon emissions by 63 tonne besides facilitating India International Centre to save Rs 11 lakh annually in their electricity bill," Sinha said.
The unique parabolic design of the building's rooftop posed a challenge before the engineering team of Tata Power Solar so the rooftop mounting was planned in an unconventional manner, company officials said.
Speaking on the occasion IIC President NN Vohra thanked Tata Power Solar and its engineers for the solar plant.
