On Thursday, MG Motor India has announced that it has become the first passenger car brand to adopt wind-solar hybrid energy. The company claims that its manufacturing plant in Halol utilises 50 percent energy requirement from green energy. To harness green energy the automaker has joined hands with CleanMax Wind Solar Hybrid Park in Rajkot. 

The SAIC-owned car manufacturer has claimed that it gets 4.85 MW of wind-solar hybrid power for its Halol production facility. With such technology, the company is now capable to abate approx two lakh MT of CO2 over 15 years, which is equal to planting more than 13 lakh trees.

The company is also hoping to enhance its role in building a sustainable environment and also lowering the energy costs of the car manufacturer. It is a strategic move by the automaker towards zero-emission and by collaborating with CleanMax the company will be developing a clean manufacturing ecosystem.
