Ghatkopar’s goes green as Shivshakti Heights adopts rooftop solar power.
Joining the initiative of adopting renewable means, Shivshakti Heights, a residential society in Ghatkopar has gone solar.
“We are delighted about becoming a part of the green initiative. Adopting solar energy is not only a smart move that results in savings but also contributes in bettering the environment by helping in reducing carbon footprint.” says Shri. Dinesh Doshi, resident and a member of Shivshakti Heights society.
The rooftop solar system is commissioned by Avishakti Rooftop Solar Pvt. Ltd who have installed the net metering enabled rooftop solar system in the premises. “The custom made 9.135kW system consists of 29 solar panels that uses 1100 sq. ft of rooftop area and will result in the generation of 14,600 units of electricity”, says Animesh Manek, Founder and Director, Avishakti Rooftop Solar Pvt. Ltd.
“The annual electricity consumption of the society is approx. 60,000 Units (kWh). By going solar we reduce the dependency on the electricity grid and thereby cut the electricity bills by 25%. The installed solar system will be lighting up the Lifts, Water pumps and Common lightning will result in estimated annual savings of ₹1,65,000” added Shri. Bharat Satra, resident and a member of Shivshakti Heights
The net-metering function works on the efficiently running system where the surplus power generated is exported back to the grid and any deficiency is imported from the grid. At the end you are charged by the electrical power supplier, in this case Reliance Energy, for the ‘net usage’.
“Rooftop solar power plants once installed will provide power for 25 years. The initial cost of installation may be a little high but you recover the same within 3-4 years and post that you not only get freedom from huge bills but also do your bit in contributing to making the environment pollution-free.” Shri. Jay Desai, Secretary, Shivshakti Heights adds.
“The government’s initiatives in pushing for adopting renewable means of energy has resulted in a lot of enthusiasm and awareness in people. We are receiving a lot of interesting queries around how to best leverage solar power and it is interesting to see how people are not only doing it for saving money but also for the bigger cause of making a better tomorrow” concludes Animesh.
