MahindraRevaPlantInaugurationReleaseIndian business leaders are coming to grips with their country’s electricity shortage issues and looking for their own solutions, like buying power at reduced rates from solar farms or building factories with sustainable features, á la the Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles Facility in Bangalore.

The Mahindra Reva plant collects rain water; uses natural ventilation and translucent building coverings to reduce reliance on fans and air conditioning; has a solar roof to provide factory power, street lighting and charging facilities to test the battery powered cars; as well as a battery recycling capability.

The facility has the capacity to build 30,000 cars a year.
