The project has been financed, constructed and executed by Enerparc through its investment special purpose vehicle, which would sell the solar power to BFW on a long term. The project is second of Enerparc’s growing solar rooftop portfolio in India, it is one of the benchmarks for the company as innovative non-penetrative mounting methods are used coupled with Enerparc’s priority on quality and safety. Speaking about the association with BFW, Mr. Santosh Khatelsal, the Managing Director of Enerparc India, said, “We are very glad to be associated as a sustainability partner with a prestigious company like BFW. This project will help Enerparc to add another leading brand in its portfolio of 1.2 GW as an Independent Power Producer across the world.”
The rooftop solar project at BFW will generate approx. 15 lacs of units annually thus helping BFW to meet a major portion of its power needs through green energy and reducing its dependency on fossil fuels. It will also help BFW to offset 1350 tons of carbon emission every year. “BFW has always been a pioneer in adopting new technologies for its business and global sustainability, this solar project with Enerparc is yet another example of BFW’s commitment of being socially responsive towards the environment," said Mr. Ravi Raghavan, the MD and CEO of BFW.
