The 324-KWp solar energy plant, christened Lokmat Inexperienced Vitality Park, arrange by Lokmat Media at its Butibori printing unit close to Nagpur was inaugurated on March 24, 2015. That is the primary solar energy plant arrange by any media home within the nation. The group has additionally arrange one other solar energy plant at Shendra in Aurangabad. Beginning with the Nagpur and Aurangabad centres, the printing of Lokmat, Lokmat Samachar and Lokmat Occasions will now be powered by photo voltaic power.
The solar energy plant was inaugurated by Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao. Maharashtra Vitality Minister and District Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule; Chairman of Editorial Board of Lokmat Media Vijay Darda; Ramtek MP Krupal Tumane; former MP and Managing Editor of The Hitavada, Banwarilal Purohit; Hingna MLA Sameer Meghe; and Managing Director of Lokmat Media, Devendra Darda, had been additionally current on the event.
Like Nagpur, the solar energy plant at Lokmat Media’s Aurangabad printing unit too was inaugurated concurrently on March 24.
Talking on the launch, Vidyasagar Rao mentioned, “India now wants a inexperienced power revolution to make the nation renewable and unconventional energy-reliant with a view to create a pollution-free setting.” He added that the geothermal power from the sources of each photo voltaic and tidal waves can be an ideal assist to Maharashtra’s coast for the aim of tourism.
He identified that there have been three million individuals in India, who didn’t have entry to power. “Practically 60 per cent of India’s power wants are met by means of coal, whereas 6 per cent is thru solar energy.

He additionally hoped that Vidarbha would develop into a frontrunner in space of solar energy era.
The Butibori plant’s capability is 324 KW and each day it could actually generate between 1,500 and 1,800 items of electrical energy from daylight. Of this, Lokmat requires almost 1,400 to 1,500 items, whereas the 300 to 400 items can be launched into the electrical energy transmission community.
Equally, the Aurangabad’s plant at Shendra has a capability of 258 KW and it could actually generate 1,200 to 1,400 items of electrical energy. Thus, each vegetation of Lokmat collectively will launch almost 500 to 600 items of clean-green electrical energy into the electrical energy transmission community each day.
Each the vegetation on a median generate 2,800 items of fresh electrical energy, stopping the discharge of 1,680 kg of CO2 into the air each day.
