(Sterling and Wilson Pvt. Ltd. Develops 140 MW of Solar Power Plants across India during the Financial Year 2014-15)
Sterling and Wilson Pvt. Ltd., part of Shapoorji Pallonji Group and one of India’s leading solar EPC companies with over 350 MW of solar projects spread across 13 states is close to commissioning more than 140 megawatts (MW) of solar power generation plants in India for the financial year 2014 – 2015. The Solar Photovoltaic power plant projects have been developed by Sterling and Wilson for various private sector institutions across Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana.
According to Sterling and Wilson, the cumulative power output from the 140 MWs of solar power projects commissioned by them in a commendable time frame of 365 days would be able to light up 2,00,000 Indian homes or approximately 4 times the number of households in New Delhi. From an environmental perspective, Sterling and Wilson has helped in reducing the country’s carbon footprint by decreasing its dependency on coal for captive power generation by 70 tonnes per year, which is the approximate amount of coal required to generate around 140 MW of electricity. Sterling & Wilson has also been ranked the top solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company in India by the Hong Kong-based IHS Research, a market research firm. The India and global lists put the company ahead of well-entrenched Indian solar EPC players such as L&T ECC Solar, Mahindra EPC and Moser Baer.
Speaking on the milestone of completing 140 MW of solar power generation plants across India during the last financial year, Mr. Bikesh Ogra, President, Sterling and Wilson, Electrical & Solar Business said, “It has been a very exciting year in terms of the solar projects executed by us at Sterling and Wilson.
