ADVIK Hi-Tech Private Limited (AHPL) is one of India’s leading & global automotive component manufacturers. The solar plant is installed on the rooftop of its facility located at Bengaluru. The plant has been installed by GeWiS Renewpower.
A 125kWp rooftop solar power plant has been installed on the metal sheet rooftop of the factory. The plant is spread over an area of 1312 square meters.
The solar power plant generates about 17.7 lakh units of energy annually and is taking up about 25% of the factory’s total energy requirement.
The system is installed under the ‘Net Metering’ scheme of BESCOM. In this, the unused power that is generated during daytime is fed to the grid. The units are adjusted in the night hours when solar is not available.
The solar plant is installed under the ‘OPEX’ form of financial model. In this, the system cost is paid by one of GeWiS empanelled investors. AHPL pays to the investor on an approved cost per unit for the number of units generated per month. The investor and AHPL have signed a long term power purchase agreement (PPA) for the same.
The solar power plant helps in reducing about 4 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
GeWiS is also taking care of the operation and maintenance of the solar power plant. GeWiS has installed the required safety equipment like walkways. These walkways provide easy access to solar plants. A cleaning system has been placed by the GeWiS. The cleaning system comprises of UPVC pipe grid for supplying water on the roof. The pipe consists of nozzle at every 25 mtrs so that panels all over the roof are accessible for cleaning.
The indigenously developed data logger by GeWiS has been set up in the facility. This helps in online monitoring of the solar power plant.
Gewis is the preferred partner of AHPL. We have also installed rooftop solar plant at its Pantnagar facility.
