Spark Minda, Ashok Minda Group is focused on undertaking operational measures and initiatives that help in improving enterprise-wide environmental sustainability. Eco-awareness and responsible use of energy resources are not just a part of its sustainability strategy but a fundamental operational pre-requisite.
Spark Minda, Ashok Minda Group promotes green initiatives through regular monitoring on electricity consumption and electricity saving. In some of our units, we successfully implemented electronic room sensors, which will switch off lights & AC automatically, when persons are not in room. Usage of transparent roof sheets and reflective light model at our units allow sun light to come to shop floor saving electricity consumed for lights during day time and we are also promoting more usage of alternative fuels & renewable energy like solar lighting in our plant/unit areas, water heating in our processes.
In FY 17-18, the Group has saved 17 Lakh KWH electricity through adoption of above practices across units. Whereas, till date, 76 lakh KWH of electricity is saved through adoption of such practices.
We also believe that green energy is not generated but conserved. The more we conserve energy, the more we save for the future.
Adoption of cost-effective standards and innovative technologies can reduce global electricity consumption to 14%. This means avoiding roughly 1,300 mid-size power plants.
Therefore, Spark Minda, Ashok Minda Group is doing its bit by expanding infrastructure and upgrading technology to provide clean energy in all its businesses. The Group has installed solar panel at our major electricity consuming factories to promote power generation through renewable sources of energy.
Some of the major solar producing companies are MCL, MCL DCD, MFE, etc.
In FY 17-18, 2.53 lakh KWH of electricity was generated through solar power. Whereas till date, solar power generation of 37.25 KWH has been done.
