Technologies What We Used
The project uses state-of-art robots for module cleaning to ensure ZERO water usage at the plant. In the water deficient state of Wanarpathy, this experimental technology will transform the way future Solar projects are built. Our project is executed under Domestic Content Requirement (DCR) wherein Indigenous cells and PV modules have been used. The Project is installed with TMEIC inverter to achieve high inverter efficiency. Project has been commissioned in September 2018.
Net metering has become possible through solar panels. When energy is produced through these panels, it is directly converted from sunlight. Therefore, there is no wastage of water and excessive production is not problematic. This is because net metering allows organizations and businesses to reserve the energy and distribute it.
