Following the decision of the Haryana Government as well as being conscious of the importance to use natural resources for energy, some units in Haryana are actively installing solar energy. While few like Pee Empro have taken a lead to install the same, many others are in the process.
Arjun Uppal, VP, Strategic Initiatives, Pee Empro informed Apparel Online, “All units of the Pee Empro Group will be going green with the implementation of 35 KW solar plants at all the units along with change of lights to LED bulbs. As of now we have started producing solar energy in two of our units. It is too early to talk about results, but we are convinced that the project will reap benefits to us. Measurable returns will take about 5 to 6 years. We have three units in Haryana and will execute the same in the third unit in the coming month; we are just waiting to analyse our experience of the two units already installed with solar panels. Overall investment has been done for 15 to 16 KW in one unit which is 10 to 15 per cent of the total requirement. We would be looking for more such technologies to save energy, be it LED lighting, servo motors or any other advance technology.”
Pee Empro is one of the leading export houses of Delhi-NCR, expecting turnover of US $ 46.15 million (Rs. 300 crore) in the current fiscal.
