CleanMax solar has installed on-site solar plants in their Jaipur, Manesar and Gwalior campuses with a cumulative capacity of 1.8 MWp. Based on the ‘pay as you go’ or commonly known as ‘OPEX’ model, CleanMax Solar has provided solar power to Amity University at a tariff, cheaper than the grid electricity tariff, thereby ensuring cumulative savings of over INR 1 crore per annum.
