CleanMax Solar, recently enabled Lakshmibai College which is run by the Delhi Government, to install a rooftop solar project at their campus without any upfront investment. As part of the 2.5 MW contract secured with the Delhi Government’s power generation arm, Indraprastha Power Generation Co. Ltd. (IPGCL), CleanMax Solar has commissioned a 77 kWp project which is expected to reduce the electricity bill by 40-50 per cent with savings of over 5 lakhs per annum for next 25 years. Based on the ‘pay as you go’ or
commonly known as ‘OPEX’ model, CleanMax Solar has provided solar power to Lakshmibai College at a tariff, 50 per cent cheaper than the prevailing grid electricity tariffs.
This initiative is expected to generate 1,07,520 kWh of power per annum reducing the colleges’ dependence on grid electricity. The expected reduction in CO2 emission is 88.7 tonnes in a year for next 25 years. Adoption of solar power not only helps in cost saving
but also moving towards a more sustainable form of energy.
