Bharathi Cement has set up a 10 MW ground-mounted solar power plant in its manufacturing facility located at Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh.
This plant, part of the cement company’s long-term plan to transition to Renewable Energy sources, was executed by Hyderabad-based Fourth Partner Energy, in a record 60 days.
It is expected to generate 1.6 crore units of electricity annually and help reduce Bharathi’s overall energy costs by reducing its reliance on Thermal power.
Guy Sidos, Chairman of Vicat Group, said, “This investment into the solar plant here reiterates our global commitment towards Renewable energy and Sustainable development.”
He added: “We are present in 12 countries and have already initiated the switch to Solar Power across India and Senegal. This is one more contribution towards our Sustainability story.”
