Suzuki buys renewable energy for India plant, cutting emissions 6%

Automaker reaches deal for wind and solar power from local provider

Suzuki is procuring electricity from a solar-wind hybrid plant to power a production site in Gujarat.

TOKYO -- Suzuki Motor has begun to buy wind and solar power for a plant in the Indian state of Gujarat from a local renewable energy provider, a move expected to eliminate about 6% of the Japanese automaker's global carbon dioxide emissions.

Suzuki began procuring electricity in May from a 17.6-megawatt solar-wind hybrid facility run by ReNew Power, built exclusively for the automaker, according to an announcement Thursday. This marks the Suzuki group's first use of an offsite corporate power purchase agreement.
