“We have ensured our commitment towards a sustainable future which has encouraged many to adopt zero-emission vehicles and contribute towards protecting the environment.

Not only MG, but several other carmakers too are aiming to procure green energy for their plant operations. This move comes as part of the respective automakers' strategy to go net zero-emission.

Speaking about this association, Kuldeep Jain, Founder and MD of CleanMax said that by supplying 50 per cent of its power requirement from its Hybrid farm, MG Motor India will see significant operating cost savings, while also making a very impressive reduction in their CO2 emissions. "We will also provide cost benefits to offer a hassle-free solution to the carmaker. Unlike standalone Solar or Wind power, Wind Solar Hybrid Power provides round the clock power supply, enabling consumers to meet a greater percentage of their daily power needs with renewable energy," he further said.
