Knorr Bremse India joins hands with CleanMax Solar for its maiden rooftop solar plant
CleanMax Solar, India’s largest rooftop solar developer with 24% market share (As per Bridge to India Rooftop Solar Map – May 2017), has installed a rooftop solar plant for Knorr-Bremse Systems for Commercial Vehicles India Pvt Ltd, the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles. The solar installation will be at Knorr-Bremse’s manufacturing facility in Hinjewadi, Pune, and one of the biggest at any of its facilities globally. This 600 kWp rooftop solar plant is estimated to produce 8.7 lac units of solar electricity and abate 600 tons of carbon dioxide per annum. This solar installation at the Hinjewadi facility will meet 30% of the plant’s electricity requirement. It is based on the ‘pay as you go’ or OPEX model which is investment-free, risk-free and hassle-free; provides electricity at tariff rates 45 percent cheaper than grid power, and is estimated to save Knorr Bremse INR 3.4 million annually.
