Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL), the renewables arm of the Adani Group, has announced its 700 MW wind-solar hybrid plant in the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan is now fully operational.

The hybrid plant benefits from a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) at INR 3.24 ($0.039)/kWh.

With the latest commissioning, AGEL’s operating wind-solar hybrid portfolio has reached 2,140 MW, continuing to be the largest in the world. The company’s overall operating renewable portfolio has reached 8,024 MW, the largest in India.

The new hybrid power plant consists of 600 MW solar and 510 MW wind plants. It deploys advanced renewable technologies like bifacial solar PV modules and horizontal single-axis trackers (HSAT) systems to enable maximum electricity generation from solar energy, stated AGEL.

The plant is co-located and is designed to deliver a capacity utilization factor (CUF) of a minimum 50%, the highest for any renewable project in India. It is housed under AGEL’s 100% subsidiary, Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer Four Ltd.

Earlier in May 2022, AGEL had operationalized India’s first hybrid power plant of 390 MW. This was followed by the commissioning of the world’s largest co-located hybrid power plant of 600 MW in September 2022 and the third hybrid power plant of 450 MW in December 2022. All three of these hybrid energy generation assets are located in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
