OMC Power has announced its new partnership through a Share Subscription Agreement with Chubu Electric Power Co. Inc., a leading Japanese energy utility. As their first-ever investment in India, Chubu Electric will support the OMC Power’s expansion of green energy production, storage, and distribution portfolio in rural India. This will complement the efforts being made towards decarbonization and create a sustainable social impact for rural communities.

Currently, OMC Power is focused on building the rural energy infrastructure through its 280 renewable energy plants across rural Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The supply of OMC’s reliable and green energy has enhanced the socio-economic status of more than 100,000 consumers in all segments at these villages. Taking giant steps in empowering the rural economy, OMC Power through this partnership will scale up to 5000 new villages with renewable energy-based power plants with its inclusive and sustainable ABC (Anchor, Business and Communities) business model. The role of renewable energy is pivotal in the fight against climate change and seamlessly catering to the energy needs of tomorrow. The energy sector needs collaborative measures not to exacerbate the perils of global warming.

“We are excited to welcome Chubu Electric as OMC Power’s new partner and are looking forward to a long-term collaborative working with cross-learnings to improve OMC’s energy generation, storage and distribution portfolio. This will go a long way towards our commitment of improving the social, economic, and environmental landscape of rural India. The collaboration with Chubu aligns with OMC’s plans of scaling its rural utility business to newer geographies and towards faster decarbonization. OMC Power’s expertise in distributed energy following the ABC model coupled with the comprehensive know-how of the energy industry of Chubu will help in the development of sustainable, rural utility infrastructure,” says Rohit Chandra, CEO, OMC Power Ltd.
