Mahindra Susten has commissioned a 2.2MWp rooftop solar plant for Sutlej Textiles and Industries Ltd. (STIL) in Bhawanimandi, Rajasthan. The plant is spread over 2 lakh square feet of rooftop and is the largest single rooftop solar plant commissioned in Rajasthan, and one of the largest in India.
The project has been executed in accordance with the highest quality standards and will generate 32 lakh units of green power for STIL’s spinning unit at Bhawanimandi per year.
As the largest producer of Melange yarn in India, and one of the companies promoted by the KK Birla Group, Sutlej Textiles felt a trustworthy, quality-driven, innovation focus organisation like Mahindra Susten was the obvious choice when they decided to take this step into solar.
STIL is a leading manufacturer of value-added synthetic, natural and blended spun yarns, weaving and processing of home furnishing textile products. It has always been an endeavour of STIL not only to produce best quality yarn & fabric, but also voluntarily shoulder its social and environmental obligations even including reduction of environment footprint in their core mission.
The use of non-conventional renewable energy will not only reduce the cost of manufacturing and would make its products more competitive in the market, it would also make the best use of the idle and unused rooftops.
On the occasion of the completion of first phase of the project, Manoj John, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to cleaner environment and better ecology. Since electricity is a limited resource and in many places, shortage of electricity is affecting life and employment of the people, the Company has taken this vital step to help the government to make spare electricity available to common man and small and village industries.
Pramod Deore, Head of Operations and Sustainability, Mahindra Susten, speaking on the occasion, said, “Mahindra Susten uses futuristic technology for its solar projects and has, within a short time, become a leading and most trusted name in the Solar PV industry. Mahindra is committed to conserve and enable a healthy environment and is always at the fore in the service of Mother Earth.”
