New Delhi [India], Aug 1 (ANI): The continuous use of fossil fuels is set to face multiple
challenges. From global warming and other environmental concerns, to geopolitical and military
conflicts, and of late, continued and significant fuel price rise; renewable energy is the
solution to the growing energy challenges as they are abundant, inexhaustible and
July 30 and 31st 2012, saw India's largest power blackout across the globe (The Great India
Outage), which stretched from Kolkata to New Delhi. This blackout was attributed to the
northern power grid failure, resulting in about 700 million people going without power.
In January 2015, the Indian government expanded its solar plans, targeting USD 100 billion in
investment and 100 GW of solar capacity by 2022.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at the 2015 COP21 climate conference in Paris, "The world
must turn to the sun to power our future. As the developing world lifts billions of people
into prosperity, our hope for a sustainable planet rests on a bold, global initiative."
In sync with this initiative, and as a commitment to clean the environment,Parijat Industries
India Pvt. Ltd. recently invested and installed a solar plant at theirmanufacturing plant in
Under Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency's (HAREDA) state policy, Parijat Industries
has installed a Grid-Tied Solar Rooftop capable of generating 450kW of energy. While this is
enough to satiate 90 percent of the factory's needs; excess or unused power will be added to a
grid set up by the HAREDA, which can then be used by neighboring villages outside of Parijat
Industries manufacturing premises.
As the awareness for an alternative means of energy grows, more and more corporates are
investing in solar power. While there are several industries, like IT, steel, pharmaceutical,
etc., across India, that have taken initiative in solar energy; there are but a handful of
agrochemical companies associated with the enterprise of solar power.
Running with the big corporations of the agrochemical industry; Parijat Industries' commitment
to creating a green, renewable energy source is cardinal. It is also a humble contribution to
the commitment of government of India to generate 100 GW of solar capacity by 2021.Parijat was
awarded the International Environment Management Award in the year 2015.
"The instillation of Parijat's first solar energy generation capacity, is in line with our
company's commitment to responsible environment practices." - Vikram Anand, Director. (ANI)
