Telengana Today reported that in addition to the installation at Hyderabad, the company has installed 600-kilo watts (KW) solar power panels at its FC in Jamalpur, Haryana. It plans to further deploy large-scale solar panel systems on rooftops of an additional five FCs and two sortation sites located in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Chennai, while further expanding existing capacity in Delhi.

With this deployment, by the end of 2018, Amazon India will be able to generate solar energy close to 8,000 kilo watts (KW). Installations at these centres would cover an area of approximately one million square feet, reduce CO2 emission by around 9,000 tons a year and provide energy to support the building’s annual energy needs.

Akhil Saxena, vice-president, customer fulfillment, Amazon India, said to Telengana Today that the installation of the solar panels at fulfillment centres in Hyderabad and Delhi reinstates their commitment and by the end of 2018, they plans to expand this installation to an additional seven Amazon operations sites in India.

He further informed that the investment in solar energy systems in India is in line with Amazon’s vision to deploy solar systems on 50 fulfillment and sortation centers globally by 2020.
