Yamaha has decided to set up its very own solar power plant at its Surajpur facility. The decision was taken on setting up an all-new solar power project on January 11, 2016. The Japanese manufacturer wants to support the Government of India in the Green India Mission.
The solar project by Yamaha India is expected to produce 4000KW of power. Yamaha officials believe they will be cutting their carbon footprint by 1,38,000 metric tons. The manufacturing unit will also be saving roughly 10,20,000 barrels of crude oil required for generation of electricity.
Solar energy is free and available in abundance. Unlike conventional methods, Solar power does not require any moving parts. There is no emission created by use of Solar energy and the cost of maintenance is extremely low.
Present at the inauguration of the Solar project was Hiroaki Fujita, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group Companies. Also present at the event was Takashi Terabayashi, the Managing Director of Yamaha India Motor Pvt. Ltd.
Ampus Solar will be taking care of the installation of Solar panels at Yamaha India's facility. The operation and maintenance of the entire Solar power system will also be taken care by Ampus Solar. Yamaha has taken a step forward into a greener and cleaner tomorrow, and hopefully, several others will follow.
