In our first year of operations in Medinipore we are already operating at 95% capacity utilization,” he further added “the solar plant we inaugurated today would generate approximately 8.25 Million kWh of energy per annum and will be the first and largest solar power plant in the state of West Bengal. The power generated from this solar plant shall be used for the purpose of captive consumption of the plant and also mitigate the unit’s power cost besides promising a cleaner and greener environment”.
