VRET is India’s first and only renewable energy infrastructure investment trust, comprising a portfolio of 16 operational solar projects through 14 special-purpose vehicles across seven states. Its cumulative solar capacity is 538 MWp.

IndiGrid said the acquisition would be funded through internal accruals, debt, and further capital raise.

It owns 17 power projects with transmission lines of more than 8,468 ckm, 13 substations with 17,550 MVA transformation capacity, and 100 MW AC of solar generation capacity.

Sponsored by KKR, VRET is an AAA-rated InvIT. Its assets have seven years of operational history and 18 years of average remaining tenure with power purchase agreements (PPAs) with strong counterparties.
