Reducing its dependence on non-renewable resources by leveraging hybrid energy systems (wind & solar), Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has inaugurated its second wind turbine system in Bhanvad of Dwarka district in Gujarat, around 350 kms from the company’s Vithalapur plant.

Built with an investment of Rs 176 million, the company would now produce a total of 4.7 MW wind energy including its first wind turbine system of 2 MW capacity installed in Radhanpur of Patan district in Gujarat last year.

Now, HMSI would meet over 50 per cent of the total energy requirements at its four manufacturing plants in Manesar (Haryana), Tapukara (Rajasthan), Narsapura (Karnataka) and Vithalapur (Gujarat) from renewable energy resources.

Commenting on the development, Atsushi Ogata, Managing Director, President & CEO of Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, said, “as a company aware of its responsibility towards the society, now and in the future, energy security is a key focus area for us at Honda. By reducing our thermal power consumption, HMSI is moving closer towards Honda’s long-term environmental vision to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The inauguration of our second wind turbine in Gujarat is yet another step towards reducing environmental impact of our products and business activities. We continue to remain committed in our efforts towards protecting the natural environment.”

Generating close to 66 MW of electricity every year, all HMSI manufacturing facilities across India harness renewable energy sources for meeting the company’s diverse energy requirements.

Meanwhile, for FY’20-21, HMSI generated over 77 Million KWh units’ electricity from renewable resources while offsetting over 55,000 metric tonnes of Carbon dioxide emissions in the environment.
