India’s one of the leading module manufacturer Vikram Solar said that it has commissioned a rooftop solar power project on their manufacturing facility in Falta, West Bengal.

The 919.73 KWp plant consists of 2,574 solar panels ranging from 325Wp to 400Wp covering an area of 6,500 square meters.

The solar plant will cater to over 27 per cent of the entire manufacturing plant’s electricity consumption during normal day time operation.

This is a unique project since it uses 12 different types of modules from a mix of it’s self manufactured SOMERA Monocrystalline, half-cut and full-cut cell modules, the company said in a statement.

Commenting on the development, Saibaba Vutukuri, CEO of Vikram Solar, said that, “we at Vikram Solar continuously lead by example through innovation, research and modernization. This rooftop project was envisioned, not only to cater to the captive energy requirements of our manufacturing unit, but also to making it a green energy unit and enabling India’s transition to a low-carbon economy.”

Vutukuri added “the projects how cases Vikram Solar’s multiple technologies in Solar PV modules, inverter, and Robotic cleaning systems driven by soiling sensors at a single location and will result in a total saving of about Rs 98.8 Lakhs per annum on energy. These state-of-art technologies ensure better performance and higher energy yield. We hope that self-sustaining initiatives like this will inspire others to embrace the path to reducing carbon footprint.”

The solar plant is expected to generate an annual yield of 1,350.58 MWh. To utilize the energy generated from the PV plant, the company has installed 14 grid-connected string inverters from Sungrow, Huawei and Solis and 60 Micro inverters from Enphase.

The project was commissioned in record-time within one-month despite the complexity of constructing the project with different module type (half-cut and full-cut) and size.
