Under this program, EESL will be the subject of an agreement with the govt. departments, industries, retailers, etc., for the implementation on the roof of solar-based photovoltaic projects, carried out in major acquisition areas under the CAPEX and OPEX models. EESL supports for 25 years the design, design, manufacture, delivery, installation, examination, commissioning, including repair and maintenance for 5 years (according to the CAPEX model) and operation and maintenance (according to the OPEX model). The customer/owner will make the full investment in the CAPEX model, while EESL will make the investment in the OPEX model and maintain the installation. EESL will make an investment in advance in the services related to the agreement, as well as in the operation and maintenance of the public charging infrastructure. Noida`s authority will be responsible for providing space for the charging infrastructure. According to an official statement, the initiative is expected to save more than 3.7 tonnes of CO2 per electric car per year. In this context, EESL and MSEDCL have already signed an AAE for 500 MW of decentralized solar projects in Maharashtra. Some 100 MW of cumulative decentralized solar projects have been installed and commissioned in Maharashtra.
EESL is in the process of executing the similar agreement with several other DISCOMs/Governments/Clients. Recently, EESL also signed an agreement with the New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (Noida) for the establishment of 162 public charging stations and related infrastructure. The partnership aims to create an infrastructure ecosystem that will facilitate the wider introduction of e-mobility into the country. Noida Authority has approved 162 public EV charging stations as part of the FAME India-Scheme Phase II of the Department of Heavy Industry (DHI) Given India`s huge solar capacity and must have access to clean electricity, Reliable and cheap, EESL Solar program provides unique solar design PV-based solution for DISCOM, government, industry, institutions, retail, etc. by setting up solar photovoltaic projects based on electricity. Previously, the Department of Heavy Industries authorized 2,636 electric vehicle charging stations in 62 cities in 24 states and union regions as part of the second phase of the FAME India program. According to the government, nearly 106 proposals from public and private organizations have been received for the use of about 7,000 LADE stations for electric vehicles. Tata Motors and Hyundai Motor have sent winners in a tender for the supply of 250 electric cars to the government of Energy Efficiency Services Ltd, said people familiar with the development.
In early September 2020, Mercom announced that Okaya had received a contract from Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL) to supply, install and commission electricity storage systems at three sites in Delhi. The company will supply 410 kW of lithium-ion energy storage to Delhi for the Energy Resource Institute (TERI) project. As part of this programme, EESL and DISCOM/GENCO/Industries/Institutions, etc.
