Apraava Energy has completed a solar electrification project to meet the energy needs of more than 3,687 households near its Satpura Transco Private Ltd. (STPL) transmission project in Madhya Pradesh.
It launched the project in partnership with SELCO Foundation in 2020. They focused on 14 villages around Seoni Malwa in Hoshangabad district and Ashta in Sehore district. The villagers faced multiple challenges due to inconsistent power supplies.
Apraava Energy set up 52 solar streetlights in the common areas of the villages. In Anganwadis (rural child care centers), it provided solar solutions to power basic appliances such as fans and lights.
The systems will generate approximately 13.9 MWh of solar power per year and will help to offset around 11.2 tons of carbon emissions per year.
The villages include Nayagaon, Narri, Gotabarri, Nandarwara, Malapat around Seoni Malwa, and Chancharsi, Richhadiya, Kannod Mirzi, Awali Kheda, Thuriya, Kitya, Deosiralya, Sonkhedi, JanjalKhedi around Ashta.
Apraava Energy is jointly owned by Hong Kong-based CLP Group and Canadian pension fund Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. It was founded in 2002 and has a diverse portfolio comprising 3,150 MW of installed capacity, including 924 MW of wind and 250 MW of solar energy projects across seven states, as well as a power transmission asset.
