United Breweries Limited (UBL), has joined hands with CleanMax Solar to adopt large-scale rooftop and ground mounted solar power for ten of their breweries across India.
With a total solar capacity of four mega watt peak across six of UBLs large facilities in the first phase, the initiative will make a large reduction in its United Breweries’ carbon footprint, and have annual cumulative savings in their overall electricity costs.
The first phase of the initiative comprises installation of rooftop solar plants in six breweries, of which three – Taloja (Maharashtra), Aurangabad (Maharashtra), and Mallepally (Telangana) are already operational, and another three at Kothlapur (Telangana), a second brewery in Aurangabad (Maharashtra) and Srikakulam (Andhra Pradesh) are currently under construction.
Once fully operational, the solar plants are expected to generate over 60 lakh units of electricity per annum cumulatively, thereby abating 5600 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
UBL believes in demonstrating leadership in all areas, including sustainable manufacturing. This collaboration with CleanMax Solar is aimed at reducing environment impact while simultaneously adhering to the highest quality and safety standards in the execution of their projects.
