Sharon Plywoods turns Solar powered for Environmental Responsibility

The leading plywoods manufacturer - SHARON PLYWOODS has joined the distinguished list of responsible factories that are going the solar way. Since the industrial revolution, factories have been among the biggest consumers of energy due to their mass scale and high volume of processes centralized in one location.


Harnessing the energy from the sun is ideally suited for industries that have peak work during the day. When a factory’s energy use is at its peak, a solar system will equivalently be at peak production whereas, at night, the facility requires little energy while the solar system is dormant.


India is increasingly looking at the solar option to cut its dependence on thermal power and diesel consumption. The country has a very ambitious target of installing 100 GW of solar power by 2022, out of which 40 GW is expected to come from rooftop solar projects. Sharon installed capacity of the solar-paneled captive power plant is 1056 KV that will save around 1.5 million units of power a year. Though a small drop in the ocean of Government's target, these small steps by the private sector is what is going to help the country be energy positive.

The first plywood manufacturer to have been awarded the ISO 9002 and also ISO 14001 certifications, it also has the unique distinction of being the only manufacturer to export quality plywood to Japan, and many other developed countries.
