The 5 MW solar power plant in Uttarkashi of Uttarakhand is one of the highest power generating power plants in the region
A 5 MW plant in Uttarkashi in Uttarakhand witnessed a significant boost in the company’s electricity generation with the help of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules supplied by one of the fastest-growing solar manufacturers in the country Gautam Solar Private Limited. Gautam Solar supplied the PV modules to Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Solid Solar Private Limited for the setting up of the solar PV power plant at Uttarkashi.
“Gautam Solar adheres to international quality standards in its state-of-the-art manufacturing plants to produce high-quality solar panels at a competitive cost. An efficient team of professionals manages the fully automated assembly line to ensure precision and perfection in every lot,” Gautam Mohanka, CEO of Gautam Solar Private Limited.
The ground-mounted PV power plant has a power generation capacity of 5 MW. With the high power modules from Gautam Solar, the plant generated around 16 to 17 per cent more power in Pujar of Uttar Kashi – significantly higher than its EPC counterparts in Satpuli of Pauri Garhwal district in Uttarakhand. The results are based on data collected during six months of electricity generation, from November 2021 to April 2022, from Joint Meter Reading (JMR) billing data.
The key factor to be noted is that this exemplary feat has been achieved despite key hurdles like Pujar experiencing 25 per cent more power outages than Satpuli during the same period. The high-power advanced modules of Gautam Solar facilitated lower electricity losses and lower shading losses, which has driven high electricity generation by the PV power plant.
“We are glad to have partnered with Gautam Solar modules and did EPC in a difficult hilly terrain. The highest generating power in the region is testimony to Solid Solar’s EPC expertise combined with Gautam Solar modules. We hope to stay associated with Gautam Solar and together contribute towards replacing fossil fuel as a source of power with cleaner sources of energy,” noted Mukesh Agrawal, Managing Director of Solid Solar Private Limited.
Recently, Gautam Solar has enhanced the quality of its solar products by expanding its G2X series with the launch of high-efficiency and high-performance 450 Wp solar modules with bigger M10 cells. The modules are expected to revolutionize the rooftop solar segment in the country. The modules have been made available in both monofacial and bi-facial variants. The module is 120 half-cut PERC monocrystalline modules with high-quality monofacial / bi-facial cells (depending on the variant).
