Con­sul Ne­owatt, the global In­dian UPS com­pany, an­nounced that set­ting-up man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties with­out elec­tric­ity grid con­nec­tions is now a re­al­ity. It has suc­cess­fully com­pleted one year of op­er­a­tions of a man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in Satara, Ma­ha­rash­tra where the en­tire load of the fac­tory in­clud­ing CNC ma­chines, weld­ing ma­chines, paint booth as well as light­ing re­quire­ments was pow­ered by so­lar. At this fac­tory, the cap­tive so­lar power plant with en­ergy stor­age is the pri­mary source of power for the whole fac­tory. The daily re­quire­ment of the fa­cil­ity is met by a cap­tive 80 kW so­lar plant. At the heart of the so­lar plant is a hy­brid so­lar in­verter that can gen­er­ate around 320 units of elec­tric­ity per day and store ex­cess en­ergy in a bat­tery for use when the sun is not shin­ing.
