Godrej Infinity,

30th May 2024: Infinity Cooperative Housing Society, in partnership with SolarSquare, recently inaugurated its 400 kW Rooftop Solar System, Pune’s largest housing society solar project getting commissioned in a single go under PM Surya Ghar scheme. This project is also the largest-ever solar power plant for a cooperative housing society in SolarSquare’s portfolio.

This project, the first of its kind at such a scale, is set to receive a substantial central subsidy of Rs. 70 Lacs under the PM Surya Ghar scheme initiated by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The groundbreaking solar project spans across the 8 towers of Infinity, utilizing cutting-edge technology including Premier’s Mono-PERC half-cut bifacial 540 Wp solar panels and SolarEdge’s power optimizer-based inverter technology. It also features SolarSquare’s Intelligent WindPro Mount™ cyclone-proof structures.

“With the flip of a switch at Infinity CHS, SolarSquare is illuminating the path to a cleaner, brighter future. Today, we unveil more than just a solar project; we empower the community at large with energy independence and environmental stewardship. The project is set to bring Infinity an annual electricity bill savings of over Rs. 1 Cr and help reduce over 10000 tonnes of carbon emissions over the lifetime,” said Nikhil Nahar, the Co-founder of SolarSquare.

The ceremony was graced by esteemed dignitaries and key stakeholders.

Upon surveying the new solar plant project, Sh. Chetan Tupe, MLA, Hadapsar Assembly congratulated the society and expressed his admiration for the efforts of all the people involved. “This groundbreaking solar project sets a benchmark for other societies in Pune to go sustainable. Global warming was once an alien term, but today it is at our doorstep, causing drastic weather conditions. If we don’t act now, our future generations will have no future. The 400kW solar system installed by SolarSquare, with the aid of a Rs. 70 Lacs subsidy under PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana, is a commendable step towards a sustainable future. I personally laud the efforts of the committee at Infinity Society and hope that other societies follow their lead.”

Mr. Pankaj Kumar, Secretary of ICHS Ltd., highlighted, “Our decision to adopt solar was driven by our constantly escalating electricity bills for common areas and our desire to contribute to the nation’s sustainability. With the country’s demand for power rising and natural resources depleting daily, it was imperative to take action.”

Mr. Pankaj Saxena, a Committee Member of ICHS Ltd., added, “By making each consumer self-reliant and opting for sustainable solutions, we maximise the use of renewable energy, which will help preserve our natural resources for future generations. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”

Following the inauguration, India’s top rooftop solar company, SolarSquare, conducted an enlightening session to discuss the seamless process and various advantages of harnessing solar power within housing societies.

The program ended with a vote of thanks from Mr. Vikas from Infinity CHS. SolarSquare further applauded the efforts of Infinity CHS by recognizing them with the climate hero memento.
