Indian beverage manufacturer Hector Beverages has partnered with CleanMax Solar, to take the renewable route for its manufacturing facility.  The company has commissioned a 345.6 kWp rooftop solar plant at its manufacturing unit in Mysuru, Karnataka which has been set up by CleanMax Solar.

Hector Beverages which markets Paper Boat – a range of healthy Indian ethnic drinks.  In keeping with its long-term growth plans, the company has now decided to merge organic sourcing with clean energy by adopting solar energy for its manufacturing operations.

Speaking about the partnership with Hector Beverages, Andrew Hines, Co-founder, CleanMax Solar said, “This project promises to significantly reduce operating costs for Hector Beverages, through our OPEX model of solar power generation. Moreover, it will further contribute to Hector Beverages’ vision of sustainable manufacturing. In a world in which we are already witnessing the effects of climate change firsthand, Hector Beverages is leading the way by demonstrating its commitment to sourcing of natural materials, including energy. We are proud to be associated with Hector Beverages and to have helped them to achieve this important step.”

 Neeraj Kakkar, Co-founder & CEO, Hector Beverages said “This partnership is all about driving positive change in terms of the food and resources we consume. As a brand, we promote naturally procured resources and we would like to extend this to the way our drinks are manufactured. In keeping with this objective, we are proud to partner with CleanMax Solar, an organization which shares these values and provides us with an clean energy solution that allows us to offset the greenhouse gas emissions from our manufacturing facilities, as part of our broader sustainability commitments.”

The company will be able to generate approximately 523,000 kWh of clean energy annually through the solar rooftop project, abating 430 tonnes of carbon emissions. In addition, the solar rooftop project will enable the company to meet approximately 58 per cent of its power requirement at a cost which is 30 percent cheaper than prevailing grid electricity tariffs. Furthermore, the company has received approvals for net metering, which will allow it to export surplus solar power to the grid, thereby saving approximately more than INR 11 million on its electricity bills annually.
