IKEA’s first store in India will get 800 kWP rooftop solar plant by Hyderabad-based Photon Energy Systems (Photonsolar). Bengaluru and Navi Mumbai will be following Hyderabad’s lead.
The IKEA Hyderabad solar rooftop plant is among India’s maximum solar power installed per sq m plant by using class leading mono-perc modules with over 21 per cent efficiency cells. Consisting of 2,223 modules and 10 inverters, the solar plant was installed in 30 days and was anchored to the rooftop without any civil footings or roof drilling. By generating 1,300 Mwh per annum and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by over 960 tonne, the solar plant will create a significant cost savings in IKEA’s monthly energy bills.
The design validation and technical clearances ensuring that the best engineering design and execution of the plant will be taken up by 3E, the independent global engineering consultancy company.
