Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) is the first Aditya Birla Group company to pioneer into renewable energy with an investment in 75 MW of wind power in FY 2005-06. Our motive is to offset our carbon footprint and to harness natural resources to produce green energy. Later, we ventured into solar power with 80.78 MW capacity. At present, we have a combined portfolio of over 155 MW of clean and green energy.

Commissioned in 2004-05, Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) wind farm is spread across Maharashtra’s Dhule and Nandurbar districts. With a capacity of 75 MW, the power generated by these windmills currently supplies to the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL)
EMIL’s commitment to green energy is a significant step to become an environmentally conscious and responsible corporate citizen. Our wind power division assists utilities and industries to meet their Renewable Purchase Obligation commitments, support them in their efforts to conserve energy by utilising renewable energy sources and reducing their carbon footprints.
Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) currently has a total commissioned solar power of 80.80 MW spread across three states of Gujarat, Rajasthan and Telangana. In FY 2020-21, EMIL sold 1,26,602.65 MWh of solar power.
With the abundance of sunlight and largely conducive climactic conditions, India has been able to effectively harness and scale solar power to create energy security and provide widespread and rapid distribution for the purposes of electrification and other needs.
Over the past few years, there has been tangible growth and impact of solar energy in the Indian context. Solar energy capacity has increased more than 15 times in the last seven years, from 2.6 GW to 40 GW in March 2021.
