Various challenges in respect of financials, timely executions, cost and time overrun, statutory clearances were faced by the Company in the successful and timely execution of these contracts. The Company was successful in mitigating all these challenges and emerge Winner. It is a very well known fact that to win contracts in solar industry, one needs to provide the quality -value of Gold in the price of steel, hence at NEPC, we strive to achieve this. The major contributor for us is to provide customers value for money, without compensating in Quality.

making it possible to mount 100 KW per day with 8 workmen. The main aim of NEPC is to remove the pre conceived notion that aluminium is less economical than conventional GI structures. We believe that we are achieving this as we have completed a respectable 2 MW structures in aluminium for flat roof top in the past 10 months.
cost is lower than thin film. Output wise also, c-si offers more power output in comparison to thin film for a similar size module. With the overall PV market growing, thin film technology will be applied in more areas, however it becoming a dominant technology in the future is questionable.

Aerodynamic design, Two Module Structure
Flat Roof/Pitched Roof
Mounting structures are the only loose end of the solar project as the solar modules, inverters, cables, junction boxes are not custom-made as per site , and only the technology and quality needs to be chosen, whereas in Mounting structures the entire environment decides the uniqueness of the structure to be designed and also the type of solar module which is to be used for the particular project.

Since there is a current boom in Rooftop solar market with many encouraging solar policies in states like Kerala with the ANERT project and in Andhra Pradesh & Tamilnadu, with net metering for rooftop solar,we, at NEPC have developed the Revolutionary Aluminium Rooftop structures.

NEPC has launched our unique Aluminum Module Mounting Structures in January 2013. Till date, NEPC has supplied 2MW of these Aluminum flat roof structures. The product has been revolutionary in the Indian Solar market as it has enabled Solar companies to have an alternative, as compared to the traditional steel structures, which are much heavier and bulky. The fabrication work required in the traditional steel structures are much higher, whereas NEPC’s Aluminium Mounting Structures have been designed in such a way that they can accommodate any poly/mono crystalline modules and all major C-Si and thin film modules. Being very light weight (approx.10 kgs per KW), NEPC’s structures are easy and more economical for transport. The best part is that it comes pre-assembled as per customer requirements

short span of time and about 1 MW Solar Power Projects. Solar Power Projects of 10 MW scale are in pipeline in India. These Projects are in advanced stage and NEPC is aiming for financial closure by October,2013 and implementation of these Projects are scheduled by March,2014.
EQ : What is your opinion on working with c-Si, Thin Film modules? The market share of c-si , which accounts for nearly 92% of the global PV market, has been steadily increasing and their performance is also better.The cost performance, efficiency, stability and reliability of c-si are better than thin-film and even the installation and maintenance
for maximum durability and consistent safety – with fast and cost-effective installation. The installation of the Mounting Structure is very easy and quick.It takes only less than 15 mins/ KW for installation. Thus, the Structure being light weight is quick and easy to install.The detailed Installation Technique for our Mounting Structure is available in our website- www.nepcindia. com The Technical specification of NEPC’s Aluminium Module Mounting Structure are given below:
