Fourth Partner Energy, India’s leading distributed solar rooftop energy company announced the commissioning of 8 solar projects with a capacity of 3,116 kWp in the State of Telangana, as part of an initiative by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) to increase renewable energy adoption across government offices, under its 1,000 MWp Grid-Connected Rooftop Solar PV System Scheme.
The projects have been implemented across prestigious institutions like National Institute of Technology (NIT) - Warangal, Prof. Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University (PJTSAU), Central Research Institute for Dryland Agriculture (CRIDA) and select BSNL and CRPF offices.
In Telangana, the scheme provides for government offices to switch to solar power at zero capital costs, and avail electricity at a flat rate of Rs 3.14/unit for 25 years; which will eventually result in average savings of 50-60 per cent in their cost of power consumption.
The largest of these SECI projects is at NIT, Warangal with an operational capacity of 1,000 kWp. In Hyderabad, PJTSAU’s installation has a capacity of 717 kWp.
