2.5 MEGAWATTS SOLAR POWER PLANT
The SSAHE 2.5 MW solar power plant was constructed on 6.5 acres of parcel of land available within the campus. It supplies the power to Medical Colleges, Dental College, Nursing College, Engineering College and Hospitals. The plant has helped SSAHE reduce its energy costs as well as bolster its sustainable credentials.
The installed solar system at SSAHE would generate approx.40,00,000 Units/ kWh of energy per annum, enough to power 100% of Institute’s energy needs and will be utilized for the captive energy requirement of Institutes. It will help save approx. 3500 MT of CO2 emission to the environment.
The Plant installed 5,680 Mono Crystalline modules of 430 Wp along with fixed mounting structure and central inverters were used for this ground mounted solar installation covering an area of 6.5 acres.
To harness solar power for its energy needs , SSAHE announced the setting up of a solar power plant with a capacity of 2.5 megawatt in its Campus in Tumkur.
The Institute had invested around ₹13.80 crore and will offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to the tune of over 3500 tonnes annually for the next 25 years.
The power generated from the solar power plant will be synchronized with the captive power plant to cater to the internal energy needs of the SSAHE’s Institutes, Hospitals & Engineering College. This solar power initiative is in line with the company’s philosophy to adopt environment friendly technologies and lower CO2 emissions.
The new solar power plant will complement our efforts to adapt environment friendly technologies and lower the carbon footprint. We are consistently exploring new ways to harness the abundantly available clean resources and implement them in our business operations.
The 2.5 MW solar power plant will cater to the internal energy consumption of the Hospitals, Institutes by synchronizing with the captive power plant. So while generating clean energy, it will also enhance the safety of the hospitals underneath, from harsh climatic conditions.Read More
