ReNew Power commits Rs 20 crore for fight against Covid-19

Renew Power, India's largest Independent Power Producer (IPP) in the renewable energy space, today announced it will contribute Rs 20 crore to the central and state governments to aid efforts aimed at combating the Covid-19 pandemic.

"ReNew is initially committing Rs 20 crore to this initiative. Out of this, Rs 10 crore will be contributed to the PM CARES fund and Rs 5 crore will go towards the Chief Minister’s relief fund in various states," the company said in a statement.

The rest of the amount will be spent on several activities targeted to directly help communities impacted by the lockdown and to bolster the health infrastructure to tackle the pandemic.

"As the nation navigates these uncharted waters, we hope that our endeavor to help equip the hospitals and their staff with the right medical equipment will strengthen local efforts in tackling this emergency," Sumant Sinha, Chairman and Managing Director of ReNew Power, said.

The company will work across its sites in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra and cover around 140 villages. Additionally, ReNew is adopting a village in Haryana, where around 350 vulnerable households will be provided with dry ration and hygiene kits.
