Noida-based KOR Energy (India) Pvt. Ltd., with special focus on promotion of ‘Green Energy’ at rooftop of cold storages is in the process of executing solar projects ranging from 100KWp to 200KWp across 10 cold storages in the State of Haryana accumulating to 1.5MWp in total.
Indian manufactured polycrystalline modules from the house of Adani Solar and ABB Invertors are being used in these plants to ensure maximum efficiency and performance consistency said the company in a statement.
These systems will be grid connected and will have an additional benefit of net metering, which will result in receiving credit in electricity bill against the excess electricity generated by the solar plant. All these plants will also have an online generation monitoring interface. KOR Energy has successfully installed Grid Connected Rooftop Solar Systems at three cold storages in Haryana.(Read KOR Energy wins orders for 2.8MWp rooftop solar power plants from U.P based companies)
