A solar plant with 550 KW capacity is getting ready to be commissioned this month in Dindigul district. These wind and solar projects are part of HAP’s ongoing efforts to promote the use of clean and green energy sources.
The wind and solar projects costing Rs 180 crore is expected to generate around 73 million units of electricity per annum which will be used for captive consumption. The green energy projects will meet 75 per cent of the power requirements of HAP.
The wind power project commissioned by Gamesa India comprises 12 wind turbine generators which is of latest technology and has a capacity of 2 MW each.
The eco-friendly projects are an integral part of HAP’s effort in creating a sustainable environment by reducing CO2 emissions of 36,000 tonnes annually. The operational life of the project will be around 25 years.
Chandramogan, Chairman and MD, Hatsun Agro Product says, “Building green energy infrastructure for captive consumption is one of the top priorities at Hatsun. Commissioning the wind and solar power projects will help to meet over 3/4th of our power requirements which is critical to our operations.”
Elaborating on the projects, he says, “These green energy projects will result in substantial savings in energy costs in the long term for the company and in our own way contribute to building a greener India. We will continue to invest in sustainable energy.”
