Milky Mist with an annual turnover of Rs 1,100 crore has embarked on switching over to renewable green energy resources over fossil-fuelled energy resources.
The plant was designed, installed, and commissioned by SWELECT with an outlay of ₹40 crore, said a release, adding that the new power plant is another feather in the cap that will enable milky mist to run with 100% sustainable energy as a part of green energy portfolio augmentation.
The installation is expected to reduce 30,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year. With the already existing six MW solar power plant spanning 14 acres at Chithode, and two MW wind farms at Kayatharu in Thirunelveli, it has become the first Indian FMCG company to become 100% self-sustainable, the release added. tnn
