Apple partners CleanMax on rooftop solar projects for its operations in India

KfW Rooftop


American multinational Apple has formed a joint venture with renewable power developer CleanMax to invest in a portfolio of six rooftop solar projects with a total size of 14.4 MW. The PV capacity will power Apple’s offices, two retail stores, and other operations in India.

Apple has already achieved 100% renewable energy for its global corporate operations in 2018.

Electricity—both to manufacture Apple products and to charge and power them—makes up the largest portion of Apple’s comprehensive carbon footprint. As part of Apple 2030, the company has called on its global suppliers to use clean electricity and become carbon neutral across all their Apple-related operations. Over 320 suppliers — representing 95% of Apple’s direct manufacturing spend — have committed to 100% renewable energy for Apple production by 2030, resulting in 16.5 GW of renewable energy online in Apple’s supply chain today. This generated over 25.5 million megawatt-hours of clean energy across the supply chain last year, avoiding over 18.5 million metric tons of carbon emissions.

CleanMax has 2 GW of operating renewable assets spread across India, Middle East, and South-East Asia, serving over 750+ distinct corporates in industries.
