TotalEnergies ENEOS has signed a long-term agreement with Bedmutha Industries Limited (BIL), a leading manufacturer and exporter of Wires Ropes and manufacturer of Steel and Copper products, for a 3 megawatt-peak (MWp) rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system at its manufacturing facility in Nardana, Maharashtra. This system will power about 28 % of the facility with renewable energy.
With over 5,500 of modules installed, the PV system will generate approximately 4,600 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually, realising significant cost savings for BIL and reducing the company’s carbon footprint by about 3,600 tons of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to taking approximately 700 cars off the road or planting over 54,000 trees.
Under the agreement, TotalEnergies ENEOS will finance, install and operate the solar system. BIL will purchase the solar electricity generated for the duration of the contract.
“This effort is a sustainable and long-term advantage which further strengthens the BIL’s commitment towards mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Ultimately, this will lead us towards our goal of sustainable steel production with cost effective resource use,” said Mr. K. R. Bedmutha, Chairman of Bedmutha Industries Limited.
“We are pleased to be the trusted solar partner for BIL, powering their operations with renewable energy. As a leading solar service provider for commercial and industrial businesses, TotalEnergies ENEOS is committed to helping more manufacturing customers to drive down both their energy costs and carbon footprint,” said Elodie Renaud, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia.
