Californian sunshine technology powers Indian hospitalApril 2013
A major medical centre in India will soon be receiving a significant amount of its energy from the sun courtesy of Californian technology from Sunpreme Solar Systems.
A 150 kilowatt rooftop solar system has been commissioned at the Guru Nanak Dev Super Speciality (GNDSS) Hospital and will be the largest commercial rooftop installation in Punjab, as well as the first in India to use the technology.
The system will generate 225,000 kilowatt hours of clean electricity annually and will be a centerpiece to the hospital’s holistic approach to environmental stewardship. The system generates enough solar electricity to power 200+ Indian households, and offset 316,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions - the equivalent of planting 53 acres of trees, in just single year of production, says the company. Over 25 years, the system is expected to generate energy savings of over Rs.9 Crores (US $1.7M).
