CMS, an ISO-certified manufacturer of HVAC products and accessories, had been looking for a better solution for their power supply, as without a grid connection, CMS has been forced to run the factory on diesel generators for several years.
Says Tony Cheriyan, Manager – Product Development, CMS: The resulting high fuel and operating costs, together with the higher maintenance cost of the generators, have been a major concern for CMS operation team. Enerwhere’s solar rooftop plant cuts the dependency on diesel generators by reducing its share of power thereby decreasing the fuel consumption and consequently overall power cost. This also reduces our carbon footprint and is in line with our top management’s vision of Eco-friendly products and solutions.
The 123 kWp solar rooftop plant, which will save approximately 60,000 liters of diesel and reduce 160 tons of CO2 emissions annually, was fully designed, engineered and constructed by Enerwhere.
To further reduce its reliance on expensive diesel fuel, CMS plans to further increase the solar share by integrating a state of art energy storage system. Enerwhere with its expertise in solar and storage is currently engineering a system to achieve the lowest levelized cost of electricity for CMS’s load profile.

“The resulting high fuel and operating costs, together with the regular breakdowns of the generators, have been a major headache for CMS operation team. Enerwhere’s solar rooftop plant cuts the dependency on diesel generators by reducing the fuel consumption, running hours and consequently overall power cost.”
