MG Motor India has partnered Clean Max Enviro Energy Solutions (CleanMax) for the supply of 4.85 MW of wind-solar hybrid power to MG’s manufacturing plant in Halol, Gujarat. It is estimated that over 15 years, MG will abate approximately 200,000 MT of CO2, which is equal to planting more than 13 lakh trees.

MG’s Halol facility is expected to begin drawing power in February 2022 from CleanMax’s hybrid park in Rajkot and will continue to do so for 15 years. CleanMax is the first renewable energy company to set up a wind solar hybrid power park in Gujarat to sell clean energy to private consumers and corporates. It plans to expand to 150 MW by 2022. 

According to Rajeev Chaba, President and MD, MG Motor India, “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 of CleanMax said, “We are honoured that MG Motor India has chosen CleanMax as its sustainability partner. By supplying 50% 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 their 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.”
