Cipla has started commercial operation of additional capacity of a captive renewable energy power plant in Maharashtra and Karnataka.
The company had commissioned 30 MWp solar project in Maharashtra's Tuljapur in January 2021, which it has further added 16 MWp of solar capacity for supplying renewable energy for its manufacturing units/ facilities in the state. These projects have been commissioned in partnership with AMP Energy India.
The project will support the company's green energy requirements for its manufacturing units at Kurkumbh and Patalganga and R&D centre at Vikhroli in Maharashtra.
This will replace around 70 percent of total consumption for these units to green energy.
The company has also commissioned a wind-solar hybrid captive power plant with a capacity of 9 MWp solar + 2.7 MVA of wind in partnership with CleanMax Enviro Energy Solutions in Karnataka.
