DMCC goes Solar

The Dharamsi Morarji Chemical Company Ltd. (DMCC) has appointed Bridge To India Solar Energy One Pvt. Ltd. to implement a solar plant at its plant in Roha, Raigad district, Maharashtra.

The solar project capacity will be 500 kWp, to be gradually increased over a period of time. By implementing this project, DMCC will partially replace expensive grid power with cheaper green energy and reduce its energy cost. This is also a significant step for DMCC towards sustainability.

Bimal Goculdas, CEO of DMCC said "DMCC and group companies have always been at the forefront of renewable energy. We use wind energy, as well as recover waste heat from our chemical plants and convert it into steam and electricity. Steam is supplied to adjacent industries, hence reducing carbon footprint. We now look forward to another ‘green' investment, solar power, which will increase our non-conventional energy generation. We will evaluate options to increase this, as we firmly believe that a sustainable future needs reduced dependence on fossil fuels. It has been a pleasure to do business with the Bridge to India team.",/p>

Vinay Rustagi, Managing Director of Bridge To India Solar One said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with DMCC on this solar project. The project will generate an estimated 15 million kWh of electricity over 25 years and save more than 13,000 tons of CO2 emissions over a period of 25 years. And on top of that, the company will make very attractive financial savings from this project. This project show demonstrates that solar energy is a great choice for industrial and commercial consumers in India.”
