Diwali, the festival of lights, symbolizes the triumph of good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and light over darkness. Adani electricity‘s unwavering commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship aligns beautifully with these timeless values.
Adani Electricity is pleased to announce a historic milestone on this auspicious day of Diwali, marking an important step in our journey towards a sustainable future. Today we illuminate not only homes but also hearts as we celebrate the festival of lights with the promise of a cleaner and brighter future.
For the first time ever, 3 million homes and establishments, including over 12 million Mumbaikars, were powered entirely by “clean” renewable energy sources. This monumental achievement underlines our commitment to sustainable development and responsible environmental practices.
On November 12, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, we met our customers’ electricity needs by relying on renewable sources, including solar and wind energy. During this four-hour continuous period, the city was powered by clean energy.
By 2023, we successfully met up to 38% of our consumers’ electricity needs from renewable sources, and our commitment remains steadfast to reach our goal of 60% by 2027. By harnessing renewable energy sources, we are taking a giant step towards reducing the carbon footprint of our beloved city.

By lighting Mumbai with renewable energy sources, we celebrate not only the festival of lights, but also the festival of a sustainable future.”
We are happy to share this groundbreaking news with all Mumbaikars, who have been part of this historic journey.
