As a result, over the last few years, the company has been actively looking at Rooftop solar as a possible means to reduce its carbon footprint. This is where SafEarth came in and helped make their dream become a reality. The Rooftop CAPEX Solar installation of 800 kW has helped Kems Forging Ltd reduce 1568 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.

Project Workflow

SafEarth is proud to be a part of this journey. This is how we helped their transformation:

Project Design: 

Upon signing with Kems Forging Ltd, SafEarth first visited the site and made a detailed engineering report for the project. The designed system optimized the generation and the return on investment of the plant. Best industry practices have been used in this system.

Vendor Selection: 

The SafEarth team then selected  vendors from the companies registered on our portal. All these companies are industry leaders.


The Vendor installed the plant on the roof of the industry following the best in industry practices. The plant has been set up using premium components and has been designed for top-grade performance.

Quality Assurance by SafEarth:

Before Commissioning and Handing over the plant, the SafEarth quality team visited the site and identified any punch points related to the project. The plant was handed over only after resolving these punch points. 

Operations and Maintenance:

The O&M for the plant is now being done by the Vendor. The contract sets out clear benchmarks against which the output of the plant will be evaluated. 

Final Outcome of Project

SafEarth has helped Kems Forging Ltd reduce its carbon footprint by 1568 tonnes per year of CO2 equivalent and save over 60% of their electricity bills in the process. The Company was able to get the best quality solar plant without having to worry about any aspect of the project and as a result, they have awarded additional projects to SafEarth.
