Kurlon Enterprise Limited, a home comfort products manufacturer, one of the super brands in India and a leading player in the mattress segment has announced commissioning of roof mounted solar power systems at their 3 plants located in Bengaluru in the state of Karnataka. The cumulative solar power capacity of all the 3 sites put together is 550kWp. These sites are located in the areas of Peenya and Dabaspeth.
The Solar PV system was designed and constructed simultaneously in record time of 90 Days by leading Global solar turnkey EPC contractor Enerparc Energy Private Limited. These roof top plants of 550kWp are in addition to Kurlon’s existing 400KWp ground mounted solar plant in Gwalior, which was also executed by Enerparc Energy few month back.
The Gwalior plant was 1st step by Kurlon Enterprise towards sustainable environment and commissioning of 3 more solar PV plants at Bangalore showcases long term commitment of our company towards conserving natural resources and promoting green energy for a better environment, said Mr. T Sudhakar Pai, the CEO of Kurlon Enterprise.
Cumulatively 3 plants would generate close to 864 MWh of energy per annum, saving close to 700 MT of CO2 emissions. The installed solar PV plant has string inverters with web monitoring system. All these installed plants also have provision of net metering so that the excess power generated especially on weekends can be exported back to the grid thus giving Kurlon further benefit in addition to savings in energy tariffs.
The captive consumption market for solar has tremendous potential for growth in the current scenario as it offers less dependency on the grid along with high benefits in terms of energy savings, mentions Mr. Amit Barve, Vice President – Business Development & Marketing for Enerparc Energy Private Limited.
