Our Sedam farm supplies solar power to leading IT companies, manufacturers and other corporates in Bangalore and across Karnataka. The Sedam project, the largest of its kind across India, has reaffirmed our belief that large corporates are eager to play their part in fighting climate change by switching to clean energy for their operations.”
