MVS Engineering is proud to announce that, we have installed and implemented Roof-Top Solar Photovoltaic (PV) system project at our corporate office – MVS House.
The solar panels installed on our roof top have a power generation capacity of 30 kW/hr and is integrated to the electricity grid in New Delhi.
“MVS is at the forefront of technology and committed to reducing our energy footprint. Many of our customers are working with clean energy and fuels such as Hydrogen fuel cells, biogas generators among others. We are happy that with this installation, we are also now contributing towards reduction of green house gases, with this small, but significant step.” – Mr. D.C. Rastogi, Managing Director, MVS Engineering.
The project that started in summer of 2016 met with some technical hurdles such as ideal placement of solar panels to maximise the exposure to sunlight. The Delhi Metro Train lines run right outside our office and the above ground lines throw shadows onto our roof. The added weight of the panel had to be accounted for in our architectural design of building as our building is over 20-years old.
“At MVS, we love engineering challenges. So handling this solar installation project was very exciting for all involved. We methodically addressed each challenge and are happy to note that the entire installation was done with minimal disruption.” – Mr. H.C. Kapoor, General Manager – Engineering, MVS Engineering.
MVS 30 kW solar installation at MVS House is on-grid type. The advantage of this system is that whenever the electricity produced is excess or not used, the same will be sent to the power grid automatically.
Our decision for the investment in rooftop solar will do more than lower the electricity bills. This is also a tangible step towards addressing climate change due to emissions from fossil resources like coal and natural gas.
A rooftop photovoltaic rooftop PV system is a photovoltaic system that has its electricity-generating solar panels mounted on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building. The various components of such a system include photovoltaic modules, mounting systems, cables, solar inverters and other electrical accessories.
