meeco to install 7-MW renewable energy generation plant in India
Maharashtra is one of the most industrialised states in India, and the industries are exploring ways to utilise renewable energy to reduce and hedge their energy cost. The Open Access model provides a way by which renewable solar power can be wheeled across the state to accommodate situations where the energy intensive customers do not have sufficient space at their own premises. The meeco Group has augmented its rooftop captive model with the Open Access Power generation model. Since the Open Access model is especially suitable for those industries and businesses, which are limited in their roof space due to their location in densely built metropolitan areas such as Mumbai and Pune, meeco can now provide the benefits of a cost-efficient sun2fix solar energy supply to greater scale of customers. Therefore, the company has acquired the land and transmission rights for the design, construction and operation of a 7 MW sun2fix renewable energy generation plant in the Solapur district of Maharashtra. Th e-site offers all necessary conditions for a utility-scale solar-powered Open Access sun2fix renewable energy plant.
