India's leading solar solutions and products company Waaree Energies Limited has successfully synchronised the solar photovoltaic power plant of 1.5 MW Capacity at Gumthala, Nagpur in the factory premises of M/s Haldiram Foods International Pvt Ltd.

This is the first-of-its-kind solar power project commissioned by Waaree in the Vidharbha region of Maharashtra. The power generated is directly fed to factory for internal consumption.
This installation helps Haldiram Foods to continue with its good practice of providing quality foods using the best resources, including renewable energy that reduces is carbon footprint in the country.
Haldirams’ chairman Mr Shivkishan Agrawal, in a press statement, said that the group was committed to increasing its dependence on green power, as part of their strategy to adopt and pursue best practices. "We will continuously ensure that our entire value chain is geared towards improving our customers’ experience with our food products,” he added.
