KPI Global Infrastructure bags another order for implementing a 7.5 MW DC solar power project from Anupam Rasayan India Limited. KPI started implementing the first order from Anupam Rasayan of 12.50 MW DC in September 2021.
The company shall implement the solar project under the captive power producer (CPP) segment and hence increase the total capacity to 20 MW DC. KPI Global Infrastructure currently has more than 100 MWs of a solar assets out of which 60 MWs are operational and 40 MWs are under construction.
Under the CPP segment, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) get a good proposition for solar power plants. MSMEs have a small roof size and poor infrastructure and they can only meet 5-10% of their energy needs from solar energy. The energy consumption of these MSMEs is 25-40% of the total manufacturing cost (excluding the cost of material).
MSMEs in the business of forging, dyeing, foundry, etc, have higher energy consumption costs. With captive solar plants, MSMEs can generate additional revenue for their business and also address the issue of global warming.
