Alpex Solar Empowering Haryana’s Agricultural Sector with Solar Water Pumping Systems

In a significant development, Alpex Solar Limited, India’s premier manufacturer of solar systems, has secured prestigious orders totaling Rs. 43.70 crore for the supply, installation, and commissioning of 1434 solar water pumping systems in Haryana. The orders, received from The Director General, Department of New & Renewable Energy Haryana (HAREDA), Panchkula, are part of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan Yojana (PM-KUSUM Scheme).

The first order, valued at Rs. 26.49 crore, is for the design, manufacture, supply, installation, testing, and commissioning of 845 solar water pumps under the Component-B of the PM Kusum scheme. These pumps will be installed at 845 locations across the state of Haryana. The second order, worth Rs. 17.21 crore, is for the supply, installation, and commissioning of 589 Solar Water Pumping Systems from HAREDA, Panchkula.

Ashwani Sehgal, Managing Director, Alpex Solar Limited, expressed his views on the new orders, stating, “The new orders from the Government of Haryana reinforce our commitment to timely delivery and finest quality service. We are prioritizing the solar water pumps business to strengthen our leadership in this space and aim to be a pan-India leader in installing solar water pumps. We further strive to expand our footprint in various green energy applications in the agriculture sector with innovative methods”.

Alpex Solar Ltd. is also empaneled and approved for the installation of solar water pumps in the state of Rajasthan.

The installation of solar pumps not only boosts the rural economy but also promotes sustainability by introducing green energy to farmer communities. Solar water pumps result in better productivity of food grains and various crops, thereby empowering the overall well-being of the farmer community.

The Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha Evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM-KUSUM) scheme, a flagship initiative of the Government of India, aims to ensure energy security for farmers in India. The scheme also aligns with India’s commitment to increase the share of installed capacity of electric power from non-fossil-fuel sources to 40% by 2030 as part of its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). Under Component-B of the scheme, individual farmers will be supported in installing standalone solar agriculture pumps of capacity up to 7.5 HP for the replacement of existing diesel agriculture pumps/irrigation systems in off-grid areas where grid supply is not available. Pumps of capacity higher than 7.5 HP can also be installed.

Alpex Solar’s initiatives in Haryana exemplify its commitment to promoting sustainable agriculture and green energy solutions, furthering the country’s renewable energy goals.
