Skoda plant gets 980 kWp rooftop solar carport
In line with the Green Future strategy, a 980 kWP carport for Skoda Auto India has been commissioned by Fourth Partner Energy. Commissioned as a part of the India 2.0 project, the rooftop solar carport is expected to reduce 922 tonne of carbon dioxide emission each year. The carbon offset is reportedly said to be equivalent to planting 72,000 trees and it’s said to substitute 759 tonne of coal usage each year.
Spread over 8,000 sq m, the carport is estimated to provide parking space for almost 300 cars with a designated system that will cover 30 per cent of the plant’s annual energy consumption by generating 1,475 MWh of power per annum.
