IDEX India Completes Installation of Solar Panels
November 2, 2021
Sunlight is now providing more than 10 percent of the electricity needs at the IDEX facility in Vadodara, India, after a successful installation of rooftop solar panels last month.
Team members recently celebrated the install with a blessing of the control panel, which included decorating it with marigold flowers. Marigold flowers are often used in Indian culture because they represent the sun, symbolizing brightness, and positive energy.
The roof of the Gurukul & Canteen facility includes 248 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels that can generate 400 KWh every day. It’s estimated the solar array will save the facility in Vadodara more than $16,000 USD in the first year alone.
“Our Continuous focus to save energy and improve the environment helped us to install a 100kW solar farm and reduce our carbon footprint. This small step reduces the use of non-renewable energy by 12%,” said Senior Engineer, Jignesh Varmora.
Team members involved in the project also include Facility Manager, Vijay Patel and Environmental, Health & Safety Leader, Tithi Shah.
