It’s worth mentioning that the total number of Solar panels installed reached 3381, with a generation capacity of 1.35 MWp. Peak water flow using the abovementioned solar energy systems can reach 12,520 (m3/day), that is 12, 520, 000 Liters.
Collectively, the systems can provide 2.2 MWh electrical energy annually and most importantly total carbon footprint reduction can reach 665 metric tons compared to using generators to generate this amount of electrical energy.
CEO & Founder of Blue Ray Energy, Eng.
