Ultimate Sun Systems expands into Himachal Pradesh, commissions solar plant at MM Medical College & Hospital, Solan

USS’ first project in the state is a 300 kW grid-tied rooftop, generating 369,000 kWh in just 20 days

New Delhi, 14th February, 2018: Underlining its commitment to drive the adoption of renewable energy systems and increase production capacity, Ultimate Sun Systems, an MNRE Channel Partner company and a pioneer in the field of renewable energy solutions, has installed and commissioned a 300 kW grid-tied rooftop Solar PV system at the MM Medical College & Hospital in Solan, Himachal Pradesh. The installation is expected to generate 369,000 kWh of electricity every year and significantly bring down the institute’s carbon footprint.

The 1,131 solar panels and 7 inverters installed by Ultimate Sun Systems at the hospital will lead to a reduction in carbon emissions by around 7,565 tons and unlock significant savings on electricity bills. The estimated cost of the project is INR 1.44 crore, of which INR 1.068 crore has been sanctioned as a subsidy from Himachal Pradesh Govt. Energy Development Agency. The project was completed in just 20 days, showing great efficiency in installation and showcasing Ultimate Sun System’s remarkable engineering skill. This is the company’s first project in Himachal Pradesh, where through HIMURJA, educational institutions can avail a subsidy of up to 70% of the project cost for solar installations.

Speaking on the achievement, Mr. B.S. Yadav, Managing Director, Ultimate Sun Systems, said, “It is indeed heartening that a major hospital such as MM Medical College is cutting down its dependence on conventional resources by opting for renewable energy. The rooftop solar PV plant installed at the hospital will be equivalent of planting more than 12,000 teak trees and will significantly reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere. We appreciate the management’s effort to have a solar power generation unit and use the roof space to the fullest extent to produce energy in an efficient manner.”

Spokesperson Dr. Tarsem Garg, Chairman, MMU, commented, “As a hospital, we constantly require large amounts of electricity to power medical equipment all over the campus. Most of this energy requirement was previously met through diesel generators. Switching to clean solar power will not only be cost-effective but will also help us make a positive contribution towards saving the environment. We are thankful for the complete end-to-end solutions offered by Ultimate Sun Systems, which have allowed us to make use of its eco-friendly technology and reduce our carbon footprint.”

Recently, Ultimate Sun Systems had installed and commissioned a 500kW expansion to the existing 3mW rooftop solar plant at the Maharishi Markandeshwar Engineering College in Mullana, Ambala. The company, with its technical prowess and project expertise, aims to establish a strong foothold across India by 2020. One of India’s fastest growing companies in the clean power domain, Ultimate Sun Systems plans to further expand to other Asian and African markets by offering environment-friendly, energy-efficient, and cost-effective solutions that provide a quick return on investment.
