India has further boosted its solar power after a 10MW PV project has been completed in the country. Waaree, one of India’s biggest PV modules and solar power manufacturers, has announced the successful completion of the solar PV Project at Gujarat.

40,000 multi-crystalline solar photovoltaic modules have been used for the project. This will replace the carbon emission equivalent of around 10,754 tons, an equivalent of removing pollution caused by emission of around 11,000 cars every year.

The project is located at UNA in Gujarat about 30 kms from Diu. The installation was inspected and endorsed to be completed in compliance to all standards and specifications and is ready in all respects for supply to state utilities.

The plant is one of the largest of its kind, spanning across 60 acres of land. The plant has been built under the Gujarat State Solar Power Policy 2009 and the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 25 years.

Waaree said: “This is a great step in the development of clean energy from renewable sources. Such an approach helps balance out carbon emission from the power generating plants based on fossil fuels & also simultaneously contributing towards the energy security of India. It's an initiative towards leaving a better world for the next generation.”

Waaree is now looking to increase its module manufacturing capacity to more than 500MW. As an initiative to promote green energy Waaree is powering its Surat manufacturing facility with a 10KW solar roof top system and also in the process of installing a 100KW solar roof top system at their valve manufacturing facility at Bonetti Waaree, Vapi.
