Azure Power commissions 50 MW NTPC solar project in Uttar Pradesh

Continuing with its solar development streak, Azure Power has added another notable PV plant to its Indian portfolio, having this week commissioned a 50 MW solar project spread across 300+ acres in the state of Uttar Pradesh, which is one of India’s most energy-deficient states.

The solar power will be provided for 25 years at a tariff of INR 4.78 ($0.07)/kwh to NTPC, the largest power utility of the Government of India.

The integrator secured the rights to this project through a power purchase agreement (PPA) under India’s National Solar Mission Phase II, Batch II, Tranche I.

Azure Power had also recently won a 50 MW allocation for rooftop solar in India.  This brings company’s total commissioning to around 500 MW of solar projects this year.
