Renewable Energy Resource

Every stage of the textile industry’s supply chain is energy-intensive, from processing yarn, producing fabric, and fabricating textiles, to transporting and selling clothes to customers. Transforming the garment sector to run on renewable energy is vital for a more sustainable society. Customers are also increasingly concerned with how their clothes are made. Solar gives textile manufacturers control of one of the critical cost variables, power, and provides them a long-term differentiation. While as a percentage of conversion cost spinning mills have higher percentage, dyeing and fabric units will also benefit from its adoption. The early adopters of solar power who avail themselves of AD and REC benefits currently available would have built a long-term differentiator for their businesses and a winning proposition in the marketplace.
