Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
Recently, TERI University (The Energy & Resources Institute) headed by Dr. RK Pachauri (Nobel Laureate, IPCC, United Nations), switched to solar energy on a solar leasing model by SunAlpha Energy. http://eqmaglive.com/EQ-ARTICLE-35098-TERI-University-switches-to-solar-energy-with-SunAlpha-Energy.html
Impact: 67,000 kWh of solar energy per year, 250+ students consume clean energy everyday in classrooms and hostels, 1.5 million expected units over long term, offsetting 1,344 tonnes of carbon emissions & energy cost savings to TERI of INR 15 million at zero upfront investment.
The project employed 8 blue-collared employees for plant construction and 2 trained labor for operation & maintenance.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
Together with its Singapore extension (Raghav's, founder SunAlpha, extended family business), the company boasts 700kWp of operating assets across SE Asia. In India, SunAlpha Energy has raised INR 10 million for the first 100kWp of solar leasing projects in India, successfully invested and constructed the power plants generating 0.15MWh of clean energy every year for the next 25 years. The company has a healthy pipeline of 10MWp of solar PV installation through the FY E2016, with over 5MWp on zero-capex leasing model in addition to leveraging SunAlpha's deep project management knowledge to provide project management consultancy services for an upcoming 500MWp investment in the state of Punjab, India next year (initial talks).
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
SunAlpha's vision is to become the go-to solar company in India, providing its bouquet of services of financing, engineering & constructing high-quality on-site solar power plants across consumer types of residential, industrial & commercial power consumers by way of innovative financing such as third-party funded power purchase agreement, system hire-purchase & system lease, home & car loan integration and solar bonds. Build technology for scientific customer acquisition platform, process automation, off-site feasibility studies & standardisation of engineering solution helping wider outreach
