The sale of power from the two 50 MW solar plants will go to the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) under a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement, the company said in a statement released.
The project is part of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s (MNRE’s) scheme for developing grid-connected solar power capacity under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase II, Batch-III through Viability Gap Funding (VGF) mode.
