The company with brands “Arokya,” “Arun Icecreams,” and “Hatsun” said it has already commissioned wind power plants with 24 MW capacity in Tuticorin district and a 550 KW solar plant in Dindigul District.
“HAP has adopted a proactive strategy to utilise renewable energy resources to power its equipment like testing and weighing in over 9,400 of their 9,500 milk collection centres in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana,” a release said.
