Steel Industies can save millions by going solar
Currently, the Steel industry in India relies heavily on fossil fuels, which account for 85% of its energy consumption. This reliance contributes significantly to carbon emissions in the country. Thus, it is crucial for the industry to swiftly adopt cleaner energy sources. The Steel industry requires Round-the-clock operations for induction, furnaces, and heavy machinery. Among the available options, investing in open access solar power offers numerous advantages. Solar energy has the potential to meet a significant portion of the industry's electricity needs while reducing carbon emissions. Furthermore, it can result in cost savings of up to 50% compared to grid-supplied electricity.
