Country’s one of the leading rooftop solar developer CleanMax Solar has installed 1.11 MWp solar power plant for Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) in Lucknow.

SGPGI, which is one of the top rated medical institutes in the country, will source around 5 to 10 percent of their power requirement through solar energy.

Further, the installation is expected to generate 15,29,000 kWh per annum and will abate up to 1440 tons of carbon dioxide every year, equivalent to planting 33,855 full grown trees.

The solar project was inaugurated by Minister of Technical and Medical Education, Government of Uttar Pradesh, Ashutosh Tondon.

However, the 312 kWp of the total project capacity is a ground mount installation, as SGPGI aimed to utilize its waste disposal ground for constructing this project.

This project was part of the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI)’s 500MW program to harness the rooftops of government buildings for generating solar power.

Under the program, the company was awarded 19.5 MW of capacity across 6 states, of which 4.5 MW was in Uttar Pradesh (UP).

Additionally, the project is based on the ‘RESCO’ or ‘OPEX’ model which is investment free, risk free and hassle free, and will provide solar electricity at tariffs 50 percent cheaper than the prevailing grid electricity tariffs.

Commenting on the development, CleanMax Solar, Co – Founder, Andrew Hines said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with SECI to help meet their Solar energy targets under the Government of India’s National Solar Mission. We are also honoured to be working with a respected institution like SGPGI to help them to achieve their sustainability goals. With education institutes like SGPGI adopting solar and making considerable savings on their electricity bills, we hope more institutes in Lucknow will follow suit.”

“CleanMax has installed more than 45 solar plants across India for educational institutions like IIT (BHU), Manipal Education and Medical Group, National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK), Pune University, Aligarh Muslim University and many others,” he added.

The company has also successfully installed rooftop solar plants for institutes in Lucknow like Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Central Institute of Subtropical Horticulture, Integral University, NABARD-NBSC, etc among others.
