The Educational Institution is a registered charitable trust and educational establishment in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The trust was established in 1973 and is a part of a larger family organisation that have businesses in exports of coffee, pepper and having their establishment in automobiles, jewelry and construction. The trust operates twelve hours a day and based on the site visit conducted by our partner, they have suitable and sufficient rooftop space for the proposed installation. Furthermore, the trust is eligible for net metering benefits whereby an excess electricity generated from the solar plant that goes unused can be banked with the grid and credited to the trust at a later stage.
Based on the technical evaluation, the solar plant will be spread across 3 roofs and broken down into 4 times 50 kW systems. Currently, the customer is paying a premium to the electricity grid and has been looking to transition towards a cleaner and cheaper source of electricity. As a result, the customer has signed a Power Purchase Agreement with the partner for the commissioning and management of the 200 kW rooftop solar project. Customer can expect savings upwards of 15% per unit of electricity generated.
