Solar Power developer CleanMax Solar today announced Delhi government-owned Indraprastha Power Generation Co Ltd (IPGCL) has awarded a contract for setting up 2.5 Megawatt solar rooftop projects to the company. The renewable energy firm refused to share the value of the contract.

IPGCL has the mandate to execute solar projects to help Delhi meet its growing power demand at several locations around the city. CleanMax Solar said it aims to aid public facilities and infrastructure projects to go green by adopting sustainable sources of energy.

The rooftop solar plants will assist in bridging the demand-supply gap, generating enough energy to power 1,500 homes, the company said in a statement.

“We have been awarded the contracts to provide sustainable energy solutions for the city of Delhi. As a city that has grappled with the adverse effects of air pollution on, opting for solar energy is a great way for Delhi to meet its energy requirement while also reducing its energy costs and its carbon footprint,” Andrew Hines, Co-Founder, CleanMax Solar said.

The plants are expected to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 1,074 tons annually.
