DuPont Apollo has delivered its PV modules for a 5MW solar plant in Gujarat owned by Yantra eSolar India. The solar plant, located on 35 acres of land in Village Charankha, Santalpur Taluk, Patan District, is slated to be connected to the grid before the end of August. Upon completion and commissioning, the solar plant is estimates to be able to generate 8 million kWh of electricity per year.
“We chose DuPont Apollo silicon based thin film photovoltaic modules for their exceptional reliability to perform even under the tough hot and humid climatic conditions in India,” said Nixon Patel, founder and managing director of Yantra eSolar India. “We expect our solar power business will continue to expand to 28 states and 7 union territories by 2020, so choosing the right partner to work with hand-in-hand for the long term is especially vital to ensure business success and return on investment.”
DuPont Apollo noted that aside from supplying the PV modules, it also took on other roles for this project. The company provided debt financing channelling, balance of system components recommendation and qualification, reference system design, design verification and project management consultation.
