Taking steps towards a sustainable future, Indian Oil Corporation recently inaugurated India’s first 24×7 solar-powered fuel retail outlet in Kochi, Kerala.

Sanjiv Singh, Chairman of IOC, who inaugurated the outlet also mentioned that Kerala is the first state in which all IOCL owned fuel outlets are fully automated.

“Automation ensures quality and builds the faith of the customer. Besides, it gives deep insights into the company into customer behaviour through data analytics. It also helps the dealer in stock reconciliation on a real-time basis,” said the chairman.

The name of the outlet is Jubilee Retail Outlet, Pongam and it is also the highest selling IOCL outlet in Kerala because of its strategic location on NH 544.

Till now, IOCL has installed solar panels on 313 outlets in Kerala under its sustainable development initiatives.

The total installed capacity of solar power across all of IOCL outlets in Kerala has reached 1.5 MW. The solar capacity at this current outlet is 50 KVA which had cost Rs 69 Lakh and is fully powering the outlet.

IOCL has a captive solar power project with a capacity of 4 MW at its Cauvery Basin Marketing Terminal in Muttam, in Nagapattinam district. The clean energy unit generates around 20000 units of solar power per day which is fed into the state’s grid.
