It is an important part of MLL’s pan-India network of multi-user solar-powered facilities that support customers’ inbound manufacturing and fulfillment operations. The facility will support e-commerce customers. Designed in line with MLL’s sustainability standards, this built-to-suit (BTS) facility will be built using recycled construction material, liquid discharge management, renewable energy, and waste management requirements, and state-of-the-art automation.
Running on 100 percent solar and battery-stored energy becoming energy positive, the new facility also supplies excess energy generated to the grid.
The energy generated will also be equipped for charging electric cargo vehicles and personal mobility making it truly net-zero.
The addition of this facility shall increase the total installed solar power generation capacity to 525kwp with another 475kwp in works helping us achieve 1Mwp by FY23.
