In a release issued today, Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL) announced its arm Adani Solar Energy Kutchh One has commissioned a 150 MWac solar power project in Gujarat. The project, located in Kutchh, was commissioned three months ahead of schedule despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, unprecedented rain and flood in the area.
The plant benefits from a power purchase agreement with State Discom Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) at INR 2.67/kWh for 25 years.
The plant will connect to AGEL’s state-of-the-art energy network operation centre that continuously monitors and analyses the performance of more than 80 solar and wind plants across diverse locations in India.
With this project’s commissioning, AGEL has total renewable capacity of 14,795 MW, including 3,125 MW operational and 11,670 MW awarded and under implementation projects.
Speaking on this development, Vneet S. Jaain, managing director and chief executive officer, Adani Green Energy Ltd, said, “This is the third solar plant commissioned by AGEL over a span of less than a month. The trend demonstrates our sharp focus on timely project delivery and our long-term vision to achieve a renewable capacity of 25 GW by 2025. It also reinforces AGEL’s commitment to lead India’s transition towards a greener future through a strategic approach and operational excellence.”
The other two PV plants commissioned by the developer in the last one month include 100 MW at Khirsara, Gujarat, and 25 MW at Chitrakoot in Uttar Pradesh.
Gujarat contributes to nearly 13% of India’s renewable energy production. The state with a generation capacity of 30 GW presents tremendous growth opportunities in the renewable energy sector. Capitalizing on these opportunities, AGEL has commissioned 635MW renewable energy projects in Gujarat, while projects of 4,730 MW are under implementation.
