Mumbai, 28 December 2022: Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions to corporations in India and Southeast Asia, has commissioned 42 MWp of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects for a global metal components manufacturer – the latest commissioning at its 300 MWp of solar parks in Maharashtra. Power from these solar parks will be procured by the client on a captive basis, providing solar power for their manufacturing facilities in the state.
The long-term solar partnership between Cleantech Solar and the off-taker is expected to generate over 1.5 TWh of clean energy during the lifetime of the project, which is equivalent to a reduction of approximately 1,383 kilotonnes of CO2emissions. The fully operational solar PV systems have been designed, financed and built by Cleantech Solar, and will be operated and maintained by Cleantech Solar throughout the term of the agreement.
Mr. Raju Shukla, Founder and CEO of Cleantech Solar, said: “It makes me very happy to announce the commissioning of these solar projects for one of India and the world’s leading industrial clients, which will power their operations from our state-of-the-art solar parks in Maharashtra. Our high-quality, cost-competitive and environment-friendly solar PV systems will enable significantly reduced carbon emissions, whilst providing security of energy supply. We are proud to be part of this clean energy transition.”
