India’s leading carmaker Maruti Suzuki has started building two new solar power plants aggregating 21.85 MWp at its facilities. The plants, when operational, will take the carmaker’s total solar power capacity across all of its facilities to 48.15 MWp.
The new plants include a 1.85 MWp capacity at R&D Centre, Rohtak, and 20 MWp at the Manesar facility. These are set for commissioning in FY 2023-24 and FY 2024-25, respectively.
Besides, Maruti Suzuki is increasing the share of green power sourced from the Haryana State Electricity Board for its consumption. These solar and green power initiatives will help the company shift its dependence toward renewable energy.
Hisashi Takeuchi, managing director and CEO of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, said, “We have been increasing the share of power generated through renewable energy sources since the start of our first solar power plant in 2014. The announcement of the new solar power projects at Manesar and Rohtak accelerates our efforts in this direction. By FY 2024-25, more than 30% of our power requirement is expected to be met through renewable energy.”
