Textile firm Arvind Wednesday said it plans to reduce carbon emissions by 30 per cent with the installation of rooftop solar projects across its facilities in three cities and by shifting from coal to renewable biomass for boilers.
As company ramps up the three-phase installation, it plans to target 40 MW captive solar capacity, a company statement said. According to the statement, it has currently installed 16.2 MW rooftop solar at its Santej facility in Gujarat. This is India’s largest installation of rooftop solar at a single location.
The rooftop solar installation across facilities will generate 22 million units (KWh) of power per annum. It will contribute in reducing 20,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually and over 5,00,000 tonnes of carbon emissions over its lifetime.
Once capacity of 40 MW is reached, overall generation will exceed 55 million units per year and will reduce carbon emissions by 50,000 tonnes per annum. Read More
