In the vast Indian agricultural landscape, solar power offers a win-win solution for farmers. It not only tackles environmental concerns by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but also significantly lowers energy costs, boosting their profitability. As the nation prioritizes sustainable energy, solar emerges as a game-changer, providing a clean and renewable power source crucial for our planet’s future. Integrating solar into sectors like agriculture leads to a transformative shift by creating a practical and eco-friendly approach that benefits both farmers and the environment. Therefore, Crompton’s dedication to sustainable solutions aligns seamlessly with the national push towards renewable energy.

Crompton aims to deploy over 10,000 solar powered pumps under the PM-KUSUM Scheme in the next few years, in its efforts to make an impact in the energy efficiency category.
