ESPI Industries & Chemicals
At the beginning of 2019 Sunshot has commissioned 90 kWp and 102 kWp capacity state of the art rooftop solar power plant at the Mold-Tek Group and ESPI Industries & Chemicals in Hyderabad, Telangana.
The power plant at Mold-Tek will generate around 1.38 Lakh units annually and the power plant at ESPI is set to generate 1.55 Lakh units every year.
These two power plants collectively will help the city of Hyderabad save 240 Tons of CO2 emissions every year.
Both the power plants comprise of high-efficiency modules and inverters and have been designed to withstand high-intensity winds and harsh climatic days.
The modules installed at ESPI have manufactured with PERC (Passive Emitter Rear Cell) technology. This technology lends a higher module efficiency (19%) and increases the gross generation by 14% over standard modules used in the market. This technology helps in generating electricity in low light conditions. Total 292 of these modules are installed for the project.
2 inverters installed at ESPI are of 36 kW capacity with 4 MPPT. These IP65 class inverters can perform 8 strings intelligent monitoring and fast troubleshooting of the solar modules.
A great deal of emphasis has been put on the module mounting structure and components. Sunshot’s engineering team has ensured that raised structure is lightweight, leak-proof, corrosion free and can withstand up to 180 kmph wind conditions with ease. Sunshot is the first in the country to 3D print rooftop structure prototypes to ensures that customized snuggly fit structures designed for each roof can minimize the vibrations and hence long-term damage to the PV modules can be avoided.
Both the power plants at ESPI and Mold-Tek are installed under the ‘Net Metering’ scheme of Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited – TSSPDCL. Net Metering allows the customer to put excess generated solar power into the power grid and get ‘Set-off’ benefit in the electricity bill for grid power consumed when solar power is not available.
Sunshot has installed its state-of-the-art Cloud-Based IoT Platform which helps us to do data-driven Operation & Maintenance. This also enables ESPI and Mold-Tek teams to monitor the plant in real time and get timely performance related updates.
We would like to thank you ESPI Industries and Chemicals and Mold-Tek Group authorities for giving us this great opportunity to display the best of Sunshot!
