MG Motor India has collaborated with Clean Max Enviro Energy Solutions Pvt Ltd (CleanMax) who would supply 4.85 megawatts (MW) of wind-solar hybrid energy to MG’s Halol manufacturing site.
MG Motor expects to save roughly 2 lakh metric tonnes of CO2 over the next 15 years with this agreement, the equivalent of growing more than 13 lakh trees. The company was one among the first to introduce EV cars in India, with the debut of the MG ZS EV, the country’s first completely electric internet SUV. With this new approach, the automaker hopes to reduce its energy expenses.
This partnership with CleanMax is another step forward in the development of a clean manufacturing environment. The firm thinks that by making this change, it would strengthen its role in fostering a sustainable environment while also lowering its energy expenses.
By meeting 50% of company power requirements via the Hybrid farm, MG Motor India will save significantly on operational costs while also significantly reducing CO2 emissions.
In comparison to solo solar or wind energy, Wind Solar Hybrid Electricity delivers continuous power, allowing users to satisfy a higher proportion of their daily energy demands using renewable energy.
CleanMax is the first renewable energy firm in Gujarat to establish a Wind Solar Hybrid Power Park with the purpose of selling clean energy to individual users and businesses. It intends to increase capacity to 150 MW by 2022.
MG’s Halol plant is scheduled to begin taking electricity from CleanMax’s hybrid park in Rajkot in February 2022 and will do so for 15 years.
