This rooftop project is said to light the path for other markets in the vicinity
Goldi Solar, a global solar panel manufacturer and EPC services provider has solarized Surat’s First Textile Market for Avadh Group. Avadh is a reputed real estate company with ultra‐modern residential and commercial projects across the country. The market is located in the heart of Umarwada, Surat district.
The project will be completed in three phases, of which the first 100 KW has been commissioned. Goldi Solar’s high-efficiency modules will generate 497,400 KWh power annually and offset 47.1 tons of CO2. Avadh Textile Market is expected to save 37.5 lakhs every year on electricity. After emerging as the leading manufacturing hub of diamond and textile industry, Surat is poised to grow into a solar hub. More than 10,000 textile markets could benefit from going solar.
Commenting on the accomplishment, Ishver Dholakiya, Founder & Managing Director, Goldi Solar said, “It feels good to be at the center of change and make a difference. We believe that this project will propel the overall development of solar as a mainstream source of energy in Surat.
