    India Yamaha Motor Pvt Ltd (IYM) has inaugurated a 4000KW solar power project at its Surajpur Manufacturing facility at Greater Noida on Monday, January 11. The solar power project is an effort to support the Green India Mission, an initiative by the Government of India.

    India Yamaha has partnered with solar service provider Ampus Solar for installation, operation and maintenance of the solar power system. The project was inaugurated by Hiroaki Fujita, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India Group Companies and Takashi Terabayashi, Managing Director, India Yamaha Motor Pvt Ltd.

    "With this initiative, Yamaha has led the way towards Green Manufacturing and demonstrated the much needed balance between economy and nature. We have always believed in investing in environment friendly technologies. The project reinstates our commitment towards the objective of energy conservation and support the country's Green India Mission," said Fujita.

    Solar power cells are environment friendly - they burn no fuel and have absolutely no moving parts which makes them virtually maintenance free, clean and silent. Electricity generation through conventional fossil fuels lead to emission of carbon dioxide - approximately 0.5kg per kilowatt of energy produced. Solar power, on the other hand, being a renewable source, does not emit any carbon dioxide.

    According to Yamaha, the 4000KW (maximum capacity) solar power plant is expected to cut carbon dioxide emissions of approximately 1,38,000 metric tons and save approximately 10,20,000 barrels of crude oil annually.
