In a major commitment to sustainability, MG Motor India has entered a partnership with leading provider of solar and wind power, Clean Max Enviro Energy Solutions that will ensure the automaker abates approximately 200,000 MT of CO2 over the next decade and half. This is equal to planting more than 13 lakh trees, the company stated. 

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, CleanMax plans to expand its capacity to 150 MW by 2022. In February 2022, MG’s Halol facility is expected to begin drawing power from CleanMax’s hybrid park in Rajkot, and will continue to do so for 15 years. 

Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India said MG’s commitment towards a sustainable future has encouraged many to adopt zero-emission vehicles and contribute towards protecting the environment. 

CleanMax plans to expand its capacity to 150 MW by 2022.

“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,” Chaba said. 

Kuldeep Jain, Founder and MD, CleanMax said 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.

“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,” Jain said.
