Fullerton India installs micro hybrid wind turbine

03 April 2013

Fullerton India Credit Company Ltd has commissioned a micro hybrid wind turbine to fulfil part of the power requirements of the KG Matriculation & Higher Secondary School at Annur, Tamil Nadu. This wind turbine of 600 W capacity along with a 250W solar panel will help the school run fans and lights during long power outages in the area. The installation was dedicated to the school by Shantanu Mitra, MD & CEO of Fullerton India.

Fullerton India installed this hybrid wind & solar energy system at the Annur school, as part of its CSR initiative, to spread awareness of renewable energy sources amongst children to initiate early adoption of environment friendly energy usage, amongst the community. Said Shantanu Mitra on the occasion, "Fullerton India is invested deeply in the development of rural India and its people and is committed to helping the community in advancing their lives and livelihoods, thus improving their incomes and standard of living."

Fullerton India is committed to promoting use of alternate energy amongst the communities it serves and has also adopted this in its own operations. Two of its rural Gramshakti branches run purely on wind and solar energy. It proposes to convert more of its 360 branch network across the country into "green" branches in the near future.
