Jaipur, Rajasthan [India]: As the world races toward carbon net zero by 2050, companies like Vaibhav Global Limited (VGL) are taking carbon emission seriously by launching a company owned and operated solar power plant. The solar power generated will now power two of the company’s primary manufacturing facilities. Surplus power will also be distributed to local community resources.
VGL’s solar journey started in 2014 with the installation of rooftop solar power panels in one of the Jaipur manufacturing plants. Since this time, the company has continued to grow its commitment taking on carbon emission reduction targets and successfully commissioning a fully operational solar PV power generation project under captive use in Bikaner-Rajasthan.
