Hartek Power, an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company, has executed a rooftop solar project in Chandigarh.

The 436 kWp project at Chandigarh Technology Park in Kishangarh is the third largest solar PV project to be commissioned in the city.

This 436-kWp project is the largest solar PV project to be commissioned in Chandigarh after the ones at Punjab Engineering College, Sector 12 (1,000 kWp) and Government College for Girls, Sector 11 (495 kWp).

The Chandigarh Renewable Energy Science and Technology Promotion Society CREST) has helped Chandigarh emerge as India’s Number 1 city in state intervention models for solar power generation by installing solar PV projects to the tune of 6.53 MW on the rooftops of 134 government buildings in the city.

The scope of work of the project included installation of solar panels and inverters, supply, design and engineering. The project was allotted in February.

Hartek Power chairman and managing director Hartek Singh said: “Having forayed into the rooftop solar segment only recently, we have installed more than 3-MW solar PV projects already and are in the process of completing another 10 MW in Punjab.”

“Since lack of funds is a major constraint in the way of achieving the city’s revised target of 100 MW by 2022, private participation should be encouraged to give a push to solar power generation in the high-potential residential and commercial segments,” said Hartek Singh.

Hartek Power also specialises in connecting solar projects to the grid in a bid to enter the residential segment with its solar solutions.
