With special focus on promotion of 'Green Energy' at rooftop of cold storages, Noida-based KOR Energy (India) Pvt. Ltd., a solar EPC Company has decided to further its efforts to consolidate its solar energy business in the State of Uttar Pradesh.
KOR Energy is in the process of executing order ranging from 100KWp to 200KWp across 10 cold storages in the State of Haryana accumulating to 1.5MWp in total.
Indian manufactured superior grade polycrystalline modules of Adani Solar and ABB Invertors are being used in these plants to ensure maximum efficiency and performance consistency. These systems will be grid connected and will have an additional benefit of net metering, which will result in receiving credit in electricity bill against the excess electricity generated by the solar plant. All these plants will also have an online generation monitoring interface. KOR Energy has successfully installed Grid Connected Rooftop Solar Systems at three cold storages in Haryana.
"We have successfully demonstrated the benefits of solar energy usage in cold chains and are now focusing on the promotion of green solar energy at these cold storage chains across India. We understand the special needs of these storage facilities and design our systems accordingly," said Sushil Sarawgi, Director, KOR Energy India Pvt. Ltd.
Electricity being a major raw material for cold storages, with ample availability of roof space and bank finance at reasonable rates, makes solar energy a viable option for alternate energy source.
"KOR Energy will also help these cold storages in getting bank finance and subsidy support. We are already executing orders accumulating 1.5MWp in cold storages and expecting to close another 1.5MWp by April 2018. We are targeting total 10MWp Rooftop Solar Installation in cold chains PAN India in financial year 2018-19," added Sarawgi.
