The National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA), India’s premier institute in the country for performing arts, installed a 450 KW solar PV System, one of the largest rooftop projects in Mumbai, successfully adopting a sustainable power model. The installation, which was inaugurated by CM Devendra Fadnavis on 29th March, 2017, will generate around 6,30,000 units of clean solar power every year.
Khushroo Suntook, Chairman, NCPA, said, “Sustainability is truly the need of the hour. As one of the largest art and cultural institutions, we have over 700 events taking place in a year across multiple venues within our premises, involving varying quanta of power consumption. This rooftop solar power project is therefore an extremely crucial step demonstrating our commitment to sustainability as well as society at large.”
This solar power system is built, owned and operated by Avesta Solar Pvt. Ltd., and will help to reduce over a third of the building’s electricity consumption. The installation also aims to reduce the building’s CO2 emissions by over 525 tons per year.
