Dell deploys solar power at its Bangalore premises
Dell India today announced the installation of a Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Grid Connected System at its premises in Whitefield, Bangalore. The grid system has a capacity of 42.78 kilowatt which will help Dell reduce its carbon footprint by an estimated 54.9 tons of CO2 equivalent per year. The latest installation has made Dell’s Whitefield campus the second Dell site globally and the first in the APJ region to use a solar PV system.
Over 186 solar panels across 3340 square feet have been installed avoiding the use of batteries. Batteries require energy for cooling, frequent maintenance and have a limited life span, all of which can have environmental costs. This new PV system will replace a portion of the grid power provided by the Electricity Board and the facility’s electrical generators with clean energy from the sun. Approximately 22.6 percent of Dell’s global electricity consumption came from renewable sources in FY13.
“Dell supports various environment friendly efforts, from ways to reduce global emissions to incorporating power-efficiencies and employing sustainability practices. This Solar PV Grid Connected System installation strengthens Dell’s commitment to operate our facilities in a responsible manner.” said Deepak Ohlyan, Executive Director of Facilities, Dell India.
