Tata Power Solar, India’s largest integrated solar player, has successfully commissioned a 12 MW solar rooftop project for R.S.S.B. Educational and Environmental Society in Amritsar in Punjab. Built across eight sheltered venues in a single premise at the Radha Soami Satsang Beas – Dera Baba Jaimal Singh in Amritsar, the project is the largest solar rooftop plant in the world set up in a single phase, the company claimed in a media release. The plant will produce more than 150 lakh units of power annually and offset over 19000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.
RSSB is a non-profit philosophical organisation with its headquarters in Beas, Punjab. The rooftop project is set up under the Punjab Government’s grid connected rooftop solar projects scheme, wherein power from the plant will be fed to the grid. In April 2014, the same organisation had set up a similar 7.524 MWp solar plant on a single rooftop.
Ashish Khanna, CEO and ED, Tata Power Solar Systems Ltd, said, “This has been commissioned in a single phase on multiple roofs covering an area of 1.621 million sq.ft with varying roof profiles, roof types and truss frames. The project was commissioned on schedule with highest quality standards by systematic and planned engineering and executed in a safe manner with zero-incidents.”
