In a bid to curb CO2 emissions and reduce the burden on conventional energy resources, a 1.11 MWp solar power plant was installed at the Sanjay Gandhi Post-graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI).
The solar power plant will help reducing 1,440 tonnes of CO2, which is equivalent to planting 33,855 full grown trees, besides saving Rs 60 lakh per year, a statement said.
It is expected to generate 15,29,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per annum, it added.
Installed by the private sector CleanMax Solar, the project was inaugurated by the Uttar Pradesh Minister of Technical and Medical Education Ashutosh Tandon.
The Sanjay Gandhi Post-graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) will source around 5-10 per cent of their power requirement through solar energy.
The project was part of the Solar Energy Corporation of India’s (SECI) 500 MW program to generate solar power through rooftop plants set up on government buildings.
Under the program, CleanMax Solar was awarded 19.5 MW of capacity across six states, of which 4.5 MW is in Uttar Pradesh.
