CleanMax Solar has donated a solar plant of 20 kWp to the Gram Panchayath of Komaravolu village in Andhra Pradesh. The plant was inaugurated on 10th October, 2018 by Mrs. Nara Bhuvaneswari, wife of Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, N Chandrababu Naidu; Mr. Tejus AV, Head – Solar Farms for CleanMax Solar, was also present on this occasion.
The village of Komaravolu was adopted by Mrs. Nara Bhuvaneswari under the “Smart Village Smart Ward programme” to develop it into a model village. With this installation, the village of Komaravolu has taken a step closer towards energy security and environment preservation by adopting solar energy. The Grampanchayath is estimated to save up to INR 58,000 per year as this solar plant will approximately generate 29000 kWh electricity units per annum for next 25 years. The project will meet 36% of the gram panchayath’s electricity requirement through solar power.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Andrew Hines, Co-founder, CleanMax Solar, said “The ‘Smart Village Smart Ward programme’ by the Andhra Pradesh Government is a laudable initiative to promote solar electricity in villages. While much attention is paid to large-scale solar projects, village-level projects like this one will help to improve energy availability in villages, where this problem is more acute. CleanMax Solar is glad to be a part of this program and to contribute towards the development of Komaravolu village by helping the Gram Panchayat become self-sustainable for their electricity requirements. We hope that such an initiative will set an example for other villages to turn towards sustainable forms of power generation.”
CleanMax Solar has successfully installed more than 300 rooftop solar projects for over 100 corporates, with a total operating rooftop solar capacity of more than 120 MW. CleanMax Solar also operates 330 MW of large-scale private solar farms in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, for supply to its corporate customers.
