India’s leading car maker Maruti Suzuki has set up a 20 MWp solar power plant at its Manesar facility I Haryana in India. The initiative will contribute 28,000 MWH per annum of company’s energy requirements. The power generated would be equivalent to the energy required for the production of over 67,000 cars annually. The 20 MWp car-port style solar power plant is thoughtfully designed with lowest area per unit power generation using the East-West direction concept, maximizing generation using minimum land. The facility has space to park about 9,000 finished vehicles.Maruti Suzuki has been harnessing solar energy since 2014, when it installed the first solar power plant of 1 MWp capacity at its Manesar facility, which was later expanded to 1.3 MWp. Taking this initiative ahead, Maruti Suzuki commissioned a 5 MWp carport style photovoltaic solar power plant at its Gurugram facility in 2020. With the new 20 MWp solar plant at Manesar, the Company’s combined solar power generation capacity, across its plants, now stands at 26.3 MWp. This expansion will lead to avoidance of 20,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
