The IT capital of India,
Bengaluru is a house for thousands of small scale industries and SMEs which are located
in and around the city. Till few days back the city was witnessing the harshest
summer it has ever seen in the last 25 years. Also, people in Bengaluru are now
seeing long power cuts as the gap between demand and supply is said to be
increased to 2,600 MW. For industries, especially SMEs, this would be a hard
time as the dependence on diesel generator increases, which in turn increases
the operation costs. Is it really possible to find a long tern solution for
this?

Wilson Sweets, a two decade old
company which is a well-known brand in making of peanut chikki (a traditional sweet
from Gujarat), approached us in finding a solution for this long power cuts.
Thinking ahead about the grid power situation in the city, they were looking
for a solution that can act as a strong captive power plant for their new
factory and can reduce the dependence on diesel generator.

Based on the client’s input and infrastructure
available at site, our team suggested a 10 kW grid connected rooftop solar PV
system for the factory. The system generates ~40 units in a day and is helping
in reducing the grid power consumption. The system will auto synchronize with
the diesel generator and saves on diesel consumption during power cuts. The
system is provided with Net-Metering solution that enables the factory to
export the excess solar power back to the grid majorly during weekends and
holidays, which helps to reduce the power bills to some more extent.

For the project we have used 40
numbers of 250Wp Vikram Solar panels that are made of polycrystalline
technology. The panels are connected to a 10 kW grid tie inverter from Delta
Electronics, one of the premium brand in grid tie configuration. The panels are
fixed on a solar specific structures made of aluminium. The structures used are
tested for 150 kmph wind speed. The structures are easily removable and aesthetically
looks good.
