Green Footprint

Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation Ltd. (GMDC) is helping realise the vision of making India a Green Energy nation. We endeavoured to undertake the generation of wind and solar energy more than a decade ago. We authorised the installation of 200.9 MW wind turbines across various districts. Besides this, we also set up a unique 5 MW Solar Power Project on land that was previously mined.

All in all, we have generated over 17 lakh MWhr green energy while significantly cutting CO2 emissions.
