4) What is your view on the Indian O&M industry in the near future?
Total Commercial & Industrial segment Solar installations stand at 11.5GW value, and hardly only very few of the installations are under O&M. (O&M is very critical, leading to higher generation yields) which is of utmost importance to do justice to the environment and viabilities of solar plants in commercial perspective.
At BEPL, we not only focus on preventive measures but also focus on optimum yield, by Robotic cleaning, anti-dust coating and string level-based monitoring to attain record high yields.
Technology Adaption & Automation are the key factors to update in the Solar O&M Industry for effective operation and maintenance.
5) What are your plans for the year 2022?
We have an ambitious target of adding 25MWp in the financial year 2022 – 2023 to our portfolio, cumulative of Rooftop and Ground Mounted Projects.
Solar Robotic cleaning equipment.
E-mobility will play a major role with a great future ahead in this segment. BEPL is very much keen on expanding its arms to E-mobility via DC Charging infrastructures.
