Kapurthala, June 25

Under the Indian Railways Green Energy initiative, Rail Coach Factory has now enhanced its rooftop solar plant capacity in addition to existing 100 kWp plant. The RCF has planned to enhance its solar energy production capacity by 900 kWp under RESCO model.

In the first phase of this project, solar plant of capacity 151.38 kWp (kilowatts peak) has been commissioned at administrative building of the RCF. It was inaugurated by Ravinder Gupta, GM/RCF, in presence of senior officers of the coach factory.

This plant is expected to generate 604 kWp per day and generate 2,20,460 kWh per year. This will save electric saving of Rs 6,18,288 per year. RESCO will establish and operate the plant and charge a very nominal rate of electricity from the RCF.

The officials also said the second phase of balance work is in progress and would be commissioned shortly at various locations in RCF. “These solar panels will be installed at Technical Training Centre, Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital, Senior Secondary School and other locations. A total of 900 kWp will generate 13,14,000 kWh and save electricity energy of an amount of Rs 39,42,000”, they said.

The set up of solar plant will help RCF in its endeavour to provide clean environment besides, reducing the need for finite resources.
