Gurugram-based Acme Solar has switched on a 300 MW solar power project in the Jodhpur district of Rajasthan. The project is situated at village Badiseed, and is Acme’s largest single-location project so far.
The Acme plant in Rajasthan will supply electricity to Maharashtra, with Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd (MSEDCL) as the offtaker. The electricity supply will be enough to light up over six lakh homes.
The Acme team was able to bring the capacity online in the shortest available time despite Covid-induced supply chain disruption and rising module prices.
“We faced two consecutive rounds of the Covid-19 pandemic that brought working at the sites to a standstill. It was burdened with disruption in the supply chain and sky-rocketing prices of solar modules and other equipment,” said Sandeep Kashyap, chief operating officer of Acme Solar. “Prices of nearly all components peaked, and freight increased many folds. We could overcome all the challenges …. and commission the project successfully in the shortest available time.”
Acme Solar is currently implementing another 1.75 GW of solar projects.
