Also, Jakson with a portfolio of more than 70 MW solar rooftop installations had the requisite technical expertise to commission a plant at competitive costs that could deliver lowest per unit cost of power to be borne by the client.

With its in-house manufacturing capabilities and engineering expertise, Jakson was able to execute this project in a short span of just 60 days - from the date of receiving the LOI. The plant has the capacity to generate up to 300,000 units of electricity every year that can power various electrical systems in the building.  Any additional power generated is supplied to the grid through net metering facility. Apart from electricity cost savings of INR 8 to 10 lakhs per year, the plant will also help offset about 216000 kilograms of carbon emissions per year.
