Waaree Renewable commissions 122.5 MW solar project in Madhya Pradesh


Waaree Renewable Technologies, an arm of India’s largest solar panel manufacturer Waaree Energies Ltd, announced today that it has commissioned 87.5 MW AC (122.5 MW DC) out of 150 MW AC (210 MW DC) solar power project for UPC Renewables. 

The project is located in the Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh.

This project with UPC Renewables is Waaree’s first with interstate transmission system (ISTS) connectivity. Waaree’s scope includes engineering, procurement, construction, and two years of operation and maintenance of the plant.  

“The solar power project is spread across 651 acres of undulated land terrain, with power being evacuated at a 220 kV voltage level and connected at Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd’s 400 kV/220 kV substation through the inter-state transmission system network,” stated Waaree. 

The plant is built with 508,072 PV modules, ranging from 335 Wp polycrystalline to 540 Wp monocrystalline, and an inverter capacity of 3.125 MW. It benefits from a 25-year power purchase agreement with the Solar Energy Corp. of India.

Waaree Renewable Technologies, the solar EPC arm of Waaree Energies, also finances, constructs, owns, and operates solar projects. To date, it has installed over 1 GW of solar projects, including on-ground rooftop and utility projects.
