Indian developer ReNew Power has announced it has commissioned a 110 MW solar power generation project in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
The PV farm, situated in the Jaisalmer District, benefits from a power purchase agreement with the Solar Energy Corporation of India at a INR 2.49/kWh (US $0.034/kWh) tariff and will supply electricity to the state of Rajasthan.
The plant uses monocrystalline and bifacial solar modules and state-of-the-art robotic cleaning techniques to ensure greater energy efficiency.
The 110 MW project is part of an eventual 2,300 MW of solar capacity being developed by ReNew Power in Rajasthan. The electricity generated from the balance 2190 MW capacity will be fed into the national grid.
Speaking about the project, Sumant Sinha, founder, chairman and CEO of ReNew Power, said, “The commissioning of our solar project in Rajasthan is another step in ReNew’s ambitious solar energy program. In Rajasthan alone, we aim to commission 2,300 MW of solar power capacity by 2023. As with the Gujarat wind generation project commissioning announced in March, this milestone is an important one for both the Company and India, as we continue to build out renewable power infrastructure and move the country closer to achieving its renewable energy target.”
Founded in 2011, ReNew is India’s leading renewable energy independent power producer (IPP), and among the top 15 largest renewable IPPs globally by capacity, with a portfolio of more than 100 operational utility-scale wind and solar energy projects spread across nine Indian states. The company also owns and operates distributed solar energy projects for more than 150 commercial and industrial customers across India.
ReNew is presently the only company in the Indian renewable energy sector with over 5 GW of operational capacity. The company currently has an aggregate wind and solar capacity of close to 10 GW (including capacity won in competitive bids).
