India-based Su-Kam Power Systems has secured a project to install and commission solar power systems in 40,000 rural households in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP).
The company has bagged a tender from Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency, under the Lohia Awas Project by the UP government.
The project covers installation of solar PV power packs, including three units of LED lights, 1 DC ceiling fan with a capacity of 25W and one solar charge controller with mobile charging point in each of the rural houses over the next one year.
Su-Kam has already installed the first set of seven homes in the Shahpur Majgaon village.
Su-Kam Power Systems Solar projects VP Ashish Sethi said that as part of its solar plan this fiscal, the company is bullish in making solar power available to both the urban & rural residential as well as commercial sector in Uttar Pradesh.
"With a view on the present energy crises and the ever increasing difference between the generation of energy through non-renewable sources and its consumption, solar energy is going to play a major role in fulfilling this gap in the near future," added Sethi.
