New Delhi-based renewables developer Azure Power has announced that its 90 MW solar power project in Assam is now fully operational.

The project, the largest in the state, is spread across four districts (Udalguri, Kamrup, Nagaon, and Cachar).

The NYSE-listed company commissioned the project in phases, with the final 25 MW portion recently going online in Cachar.

The power generated by the plant is being supplied to Assam Power Distribution Co. Ltd. under a 25-year power purchase agreement, at a tariff of INR 3.34 ($0.44)/kWh.

The project brings Azure Power’s operational capacity in India to more than 2.9 GW.
