  • SunSource Energy will certainly create a 4 MW floating solar project in addition to a 2 MW storage space system in Andaman as well as Nicobar Islands which it has won in a SECI tender.

SunSource Energy, a leading distributed solar power firm, has actually introduced that it will certainly establish a 4 MWac grid-connected floating solar PV power project, in addition to a 2 MW/1 MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in Andaman as well as Nicobar Islands which it has actually won in a Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) tender.

Once commissioned, it will be just one of India's biggest floating plus storage project in Andaman which will certainly in turn will minimize the existing dependence on diesel. The project will be positioned at the Reservoir of Kalpong river, Kalpong Hydroelectric Project (KHEP) Dam, Diglipur, North Andaman, a District of Andaman and Nicobar Islands which will power the island that will dramatically power the whole region, therefore boosting power dependability. In order to minimize the dependency on Diesel for electrical energy, which is obtaining a cost walking every now and then, adjusting to solar will certainly be a significant benefit which will certainly bring about even greater energy cost financial savings as well as contribution to a sustainable future.

SunSource Energy will certainly authorize a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) for 25 years with the Electricity Department, Andaman & Nicobar management (A&NA) for this Floating Solar Power with BESS based upon the terms, problems and stipulations of the RfS that was provided by SECI. This first-ever floating solar plus storage project in India is expected to offset ~ 8112 tonnes of CO2 yearly.

Kushagra Nandan, President as well as Co-Founder, SunSource Energy, said that "with renewable energy taking centre stage in all conversations referring to decrease of carbon impact, SunSource Energy is entirely devoted to sustaining the government objective with its experience in the solar sector."

SunSource, an investee of the Neev Fund-- a private equity company backed by State Bank of India (SBI) and UK's Department for International Development (DFID), lately won one a solar with storage space project in Lakshadweep that will supply clean as well as steady solar energy to the islands. SunSource's consumers include huge commercial firms, making business, India's largest oil company, airports, leading education and learning institutes, textile companies, and also stockrooms.

Adarsh Das, CEO and Co-Founder, SunSource Energy, stated that "the reality that renewable power will change right into ending up being the world's cleanest and most affordable fuel is a foregone conclusion. SunSource Energy means to play a leading role in this trip. This project win is yet one more step in our nation's environment modification promise to the globe along with enabling our country's Atma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan (Self Reliant India Program)"
