Yakult Danone India deploys solar plant at its Haryana facility

Yakult Danone India Private Limited announced the successful commissioning of Yakult Group’s first ever solar plant installed at their manufacturing facility in Haryana, India. The solar project is developed by SunSource Energy. The installation of this solar plant is in line with Yakult’s global Environmental Vision 2050.

This project incorporated innovative engineering to maximise the on-site solar capacity. The project is a unique combination of rooftop, ground mounted, and carport solar solutions and will cater to up to 25 per cent of the plant’s energy requirement. The project is expected to generate approximately 0.88 million kWh of clean energy annually and will offset 810 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission every year.

In March 2022, SunSource Energy announced the successful commissioning of the first phase of its 45 MWp open-access project in Shivala Kalan village of Uttar Pradesh.
