MG Motor India Adopts Wind-Solar Hybrid Energy

MG Motor India has signed an MoU with Clean Max Enviro Energy Solutions (CleanMax) for the supply of 4.85 Mega-Watt of wind-solar hybrid energy to the company’s manufacturing facility at Halol, Gujarat.

Through this partnership, MG aims to reduce its CO2 emission by 0.2 million MT over 25 years. MG will start receiving electricity from February 2022 from CleanMax’s hybrid facility in Rajkot. The initiative to adopt wind-solar energy for its manufacturing facility complements its pioneering initiative in the EV space in the form of the ZS EV (plug-in electric) SUV.

Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “We have ensured our commitment towards a sustainable future which has encouraged many to adopt zero-emission vehicles and contribute towards protecting the environment. Our association with CleanMax is another step towards developing a clean manufacturing ecosystem. With this move, we hope to enhance our role in building a sustainable environment while also lowering our energy costs.”

Kuldeep Jain, Founder and MD, CleanMax, said, “We are honoured that MG Motor India has chosen CleanMax as its sustainability partner. By supplying 50 percent of its power requirement from our Hybrid farm, MG Motor India will see significant operating cost savings while also making a very impressive reduction in its CO2 emissions. We will also provide cost benefits to offer a hassle-free solution to the carmaker. Unlike standalone solar or wind power, wind-solar hybrid power provides round the clock power supply, enabling consumers to meet a greater percentage of their daily power needs with renewable energy.” (MT)
