Officials at Manak Bhawan, headquarters of the Bureau of Indian Standards, in New Delhi proudly show off the rooftop solar power facility that was recently installed. The 45-kw system, with backup, takes care of outdoor lighting and saves on the electricity bill.
This is one of the projects in the portfolio of Fourth Partner Energy Limited (4PEL), a Hyderabad-based company aiming to both harness renewable sources of power and create awareness about these. The company has secured Rs 3 crore from Chennai Angels.
“We are named so because the fourth partner in any of our projects is the customer. We aim to enhance the quality of human life while conserving our planet,” said Vivek Subramanian, executive director.
