India Pvt Ltd (SAVWIPL) has successfully installed its largest rooftop solar PV
power project in the auto Industry world-wide and one of India’s largest
rooftop installation at its manufacturing facility in Chakan, Pune in the state
its position as a Green Future Factory, the additional capacity with a capacity
of 8.5 MWp will offset between 15 to 20 per cent of the plant’s annual power requirement.
The solar PV plant has been installed under a develop own operate agreement
with Amp Energy India, a global developer of flexible clean energy
infrastructure, under a power purchase agreement for 25 years. Not only does
the arrangement reduce the company’s dependency on non-renewal energy, the
carbon offset achieved through the project is a significant milestone in its
goal towards carbon neutrality..
sourcing energy from a renewable source, the Pune plant will reduce over 9000
tons of CO2 emission from its existing
production process marking a significant step toward SAVWIPL’s Carbon Neutral
goal by 2030. The captive solar PV plant spread across a single roof area
measuring 63,000 square meters of the body shop consists of 25770 highly
efficient poly crystalline modules, will also reduce direct heat radiation in
year, the company inaugurated its first major Solar PV installation with a
capacity of 980 KW, at its manufacturing facility in Aurangabad. The Aurangabad
solar plantproduce up to 1.5 million kWh and contributes to the reduction of up
to 922 ton of carbon dioxide emissions annually. With the massive addition of
photovoltaic completed at Pune plant, the technical capacity of Aurangabad and
Pune combined stands at 9.4 MWp, saving close to 10,000 tons of CO2 emissions
annually. The combined technical capacity will be deriving almost 12 thousand times
the Per-Capita electricity consumption in India entirely from solar radiation.
Boparai, Managing Director Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Pvt Ltd. said “The
installation of the Solar Power Generation Project at our production facility
in Pune reinforces our commitment towards building a ‘Sustainable Future’. We
have taken a small but significant step towards contributing to India’s
commitment to the world in reducing carbon footprint. With a vision of reducing
the negative impact of our manufacturing operations towards the environment, we
will endeavor to implement more environmentally sustainable projects in the future.”
