CleanMax Solar Begins Supply From Karnataka’s first solar park

Bengaluru, Nov 21(UNI) CleanMax Solar, India’s largest supplier of
solar power to corporates, has commissioned Karnataka’s first solar
farm, and has begun power supply to Mindtree, a leading technology
services and digital transformation company.
The solar farm is located in Tumkur district, and has a total
capacity of 30 MW. Power will be supplied via the BESCOM grid to
consumers in Bengaluru like Mindtree.
The supply of solar power began in August, and will satisfy 75
per cent of the power requirement at the Whitefield campus of
Mindtree. It is a significant step towards sustainable energy for
Mindtree, and it is the first IT company in India to source such a
large proportion of power from solar for a single facility.
The solar power supply to Mindtree will reduce approximately 2800
tons of carbon footprint annually, and will also generate
significant energy cost savings for Mindtree, without incurring any
capital expenditure, a company release said here today.
CleanMax’s solar farm has been developed under the Karnataka
Solar Policy, which waives transmission and wheeling charges and
cross-subsidy charges for solar power for 10 years, for solar farms
commissioned prior to 31st March, 2018. CleanMax has already begun
work on its second solar farm in the state, and is planning
additional installations of more than 200 MW in the state in the
next 18 months.
