Hinduja Renewables, part of the Hinduja Group, focuses on building sustainable and clean energy plants in India and has built a solar plant for Ashok Leyland, with a capacity of 75 MWp, located in Sivagangai district, in Tamil Nadu. This plant is one of the largest group captive solar plants in India serving a single client and is expected to generate over 120 million units of power annually.
All of Ashok Leyland’s plants harvest rainwater, have low flow water systems to minimise water consumption and recycle all waste to avoid it going to the landfills. This has led Ashok Leyland to be a net water positive company. The company’s solar plant uses robotic cleaning technology, for regular cleaning of solar modules. This methodology is estimated to conserve 9 million litres of water annually.
