Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured an EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) order for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) rooftop systems totalling to 3.6 MW capacity from the Surat Municipal Corporation.
While all the 10 identified areas of installation would be within the municipal limits of Surat; 1 MW of energy will be required for Surat Smart City. This is the single largest order for a rooftop PV system won by BHEL and will be an important step in establishing BHEL as one of the leaders in this segment.
BHEL manufactures solar cells and modules at its electronics division in Bengaluru, while space-grade solar panels using high efficiency cells and space-grade battery panels are manufactured at its electronic systems division, also in Bengaluru.
