The project was inaugurated by the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee. The solar plant is located in the Birbhum district of West Bengal and consists of Vikram Solar’s 30,150 numbers of solar modules. The solar plant will reduce CO2 emissions of over 10,540 tonnes/annum and light up approximately 17,649 homes.

Saibaba Vutukuri, CEO, Vikram Solar, said, “This is indeed a proud moment for us and we thank WBSEDCL for choosing Vikram solar as the project partner. The state of West Bengal under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee has been at the forefront of leading the progress for green energy growth and is a source of encouragement for such progressive endeavours. This project is a testament of WBSEDCL and our joint commitment towards enabling India’s transition to renewable energy and ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’.  We will continue to partner with WBSEDCL in enabling the state to harness its solar potential.”

In addition to this 10 MW solar plant in the Birbhum district, the firm has already commissioned 33 MW cumulative solar energy capacity for WBSEDCL across locations in the state and a 10 MW solar project is currently under execution.

Recently, we had reported that the firm had commissioned a rooftop solar plant at its manufacturing facility in Falta, West Bengal earlier this month. The 919.73 kWp plant consists of 2,574 solar panels ranging from 325 Wp to 400 Wp covering an area of 6,500 square meters. 

The solar plant will cater to more than 27 percent of the entire manufacturing unit’s electricity consumption during normal day time operation. The firm stated that the system is a unique project since it uses 12 different types of modules from a mix of Vikram Solar’s SOMERA Monocrystalline, half-cut and full-cut cell modules.
