NMPTMangaluru : The New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) commissioned solar rooftop power units with a total capacity of 350 kW on Friday. NMPT chairman P.C. Parida inaugurated them.

In a release, the trust said the port area has reasonably high solar insolation (5-6 kW per sq.m.), considering that it sees around 300 days with clear sunlight.

While a 250kW unit has been set up at the administrative building, 50kW units have been set up on the VIP guesthouse roof as well as the hospital building. The power consumption of all these buildings is around 1,900 units a day.

With the installation of the solar panels, NMPT expects to generate 1,100 units of power a day from the administrative office building and 225 units each from the other two units.

This way, it expects to save Rs. 13,392 on power bill per day, a release said.
