Amp Energy India has commissioned a 30 MW open-access solar project for the India arm of Germany-headquartered engineering and technology multinational company Bosch Limited. The open-access facility, located in the Mallat Village of the Raichur district, is the developer’s third open-access solar project in Karnataka.
Amp Energy India shall supply electricity generated from the project under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Bosch Limited.
The solar project will generate about 43 million units (Mus) of green energy per year, allowing Bosch Limited to meet about 40% of its energy consumption.
This solar power will energize Bosch’s three plants/facilities in and around Bangalore. By switching to solar power, Bosch will also be able to mitigate about 31,000 tons of CO2 per annum.
“Solar energy adoption in India by top companies in India has seen major growth over the last few years, especially post the challenges posed by the COVID pandemic. We are thankful to the Bosch team for extending their continuous support to us since the beginning. With this partnership, we are sure Bosch will set up benchmarks for other conglomerates to follow to switch to clean energy for their growth in the country and move towards accomplishing their RE100 targets,” Pinaki Bhattacharyya, managing director and chief executive officer, Amp Energy India said.
“Bosch globally is stepping up its investments in green energy thereby investing in renewable in-house generation power plants and entering into exclusive long-term purchase agreements with partners like Amp Energy. India is an important and key market for us, and we would like to help the country reach its true potential. We are happy to partner with Amp Energy for this project that has helped achieve our sustainability objectives in a timely manner,” said Soumitra Bhattacharya, managing director, Bosch Limited & Regional President, Bosch Group in India.
