Ultimate Sun Systems, an MNRE Channel Partner company, has installed and commissioned a 300 kW grid-tied rooftop Solar PV system at the MM Medical College and Hospital in Solan. This is the company’s first project in Himachal Pradesh, where through HIMURJA, educational institutions can avail a subsidy of up to 70 percent of the project cost for solar installations.
The installation is expected to generate 369,000 kWh of electricity every year and significantly bring down the institute’s carbon footprint. The rooftop solar PV plant installed at the hospital is equivalent to planting more than 12,000 teak trees and will significantly reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
The 1,131 solar panels and seven inverters installed by Ultimate Sun Systems at the hospital will lead to a reduction in carbon emissions by around 7,565 tons and unlock significant savings on electricity bills.
The estimated cost of the project is Rs 1.44 crore, of which Rs 1.068 crore has been sanctioned as a subsidy from Himachal Pradesh Government Energy Development Agency.
