With this, the carmaker’s total solar power capacity has increased to 6.3 MW. The plant—developed in ‘carport’ style—will cover an area of 32,985 square metres and work as a roof for the cars parked underneath in addition to meeting internal energy requirements of the Gurugram facility.
The joint venture between Japanese majors Toshiba, Denso and Suzuki will make the investment in the Gujarat plant over the 2021-25 period, having pumped Rs12.5 billion into the first phase of development.
Touted to be one of India’s largest rooftop installations, the captive plant uses 25,770 photovoltaic panels covering 63,000 sq.m of available roof space and producing 12.2 million KWh of electricity annually.
Entailing investment of around Rs 240 million, this ‘carport style’ captive solar power plant is expected to be commissioned in FY 2019-20. It will offset CO2 emissions to the tune of over 5390 tonnes annually, for the next 25 years.
