Installed rooftop system size of 247.5kW at the apartment Purva Venezia using 5 building blocks for common electricity loads.
Another solar power system has been successfully installed by U-Solar in the Bengaluru apartment complex Purva Venezia as part of its ongoing work with residential clients. On September 16, 2021, U-Solar officially completed the installation of a rooftop solar power system with a capacity of 247.6 kWp. This solar power system is capable of powering more than five building blocks in the apartment.
It is installed on a 13540 square foot space, and it will produce 346640 units annually. The detailed execution of the structural elements, like hot-dip galvanized modules for mounting, has been utilized for its high durability and protection against unwanted corrosion when gouged. With the selection of monocrystalline solar panels at this site, there has been an optimization.
Utilization of space, as the rooftop space in apartments, is limited. For the entire duration of this project, the inverters will deliver dependable power production because they have MPPTs and module-level optimization. The expected energy generation of the solar power system is calculated as 336.7 tonnes of carbon set off per year along with the sequestration of 1985 trees per year for the lifetime of the plant. These numbers demonstrate the proper combination of long-term financial and environmental benefits of adopting solar power systems for residential uses, with a breakeven period of 4 years.
Mr.Ravichandar, a representative and resident of Purva Venezia shares his inputs on the entire project process, experience, and execution “When we started shortlisting firms with experience and expertise that do solar we found U-Solar and being Bengaluru based was an added advantage for us. It is not only cost-saving and energy-saving measures but also giving back to the environment along with easing the demand on the electricity grid itself for both social and commercial obligations that made us adopt solar power system solutions.
The execution process was great, as the monitoring is done twice a day and I was quite happy with that. Involving youth in spreading awareness was also done with the help of Mr.Harinarayan adding benefits in itself as the overall experience with U-Solar was very good with no complaints on it. Mr. Kr Harinarayan, the Founder and CEO at U-Solar quoted that “For apartments, solar power makes a lot of economic sense to power their energy requirements. Purva Venezia had a lot of roof space that was primarily not utilized.
By installing solar power systems on their utilized spaces, such as the roof they were able to not only save energy costs but also achieve some heat resistance for their top-floor apartments. The return on investment for the client is about four years or a return of nearly 25% on their investment. This would be a far better way to utilize any fixed deposits that an association may be holding which yield in the range of 5 – 6%. Along with power and cost savings, the solar plant has also helped Purva residents showcase their green and sustainability credentials and we at U-Solar, are very excited to help them achieve these objectives”
The entire operation of an efficient working solar power system takes a lot of time and work, as Mr. Sanjeev Jha, COO at U-Solar quotes “ U-Solar with more than a decade of experience and a pioneer in the rooftop solar segments for industry and residential apartments, has come forward to optimally design and provide maximum benefit through solar, reducing the electricity bills drastically. The economies of scale on both ends for using solar power generation in residences of more than five buildings are well balanced. The use of optimized technology at the module level increases the efficiency of meeting requirements. With its in-house expert design and execution team, U-Solar ensures the maximum area coverage and generation of energy using the latest technology
Sharing some insights on proposed future installation and development in the project Ms. Dhwani Sunku, Head of Business Development at U-Solar quotes “ Solar for apartments makes so much sense since the rooftops are not utilized in most cases, moreover, the entire community comes together to create a cleaner space! We at U-Solar look for sharpening our consultancy for apartments looking to implement a rooftop solar power system in order to not only ensure expansion in our existing projects but also support the energy transition within these growing sustainable communities while ensuring the quality”
Metropolitan cities like Bengaluru are now longing to adopt solar solutions. We see many benefits in installing solar plants at apartments, through their reduced bills and environmental savings. In the end, the youth at the apartments got involved in sustainability for a better life.
If your organization is looking to adopt solar, please feel free to get in touch with us. We believe in partnering with our clients on their sustainability journey.
