AmpIn Energy Transition, a New Delhi-headquartered renewable energy developer, announced this week that its 30 MWp solar plant in Mishrikh, Uttar Pradesh, is supplying 10 MWp of solar power to JK Cement, a leading cement manufacturer. It had commissioned the Mishrikh PV plant recently. The plant is delivering power to JK Cement’s Aligarh Unit.

“With this 10 MWp solar offtake, we will be taking the overall RE replacement to more than 60% in our overall energy mix at Aligarh manufacturing plant, thereby reducing more than 10,780 tonnes of CO2 annually. This marks a significant milestone in our journey towards reducing CO2 emissions and driving the transition to clean energy by joining forces,” said Madhav Singhania, deputy managing director and CEO at JK Cement.

The Mishrikh PV plant is AmpIn’s fifth solar open-access project in Uttar Pradesh.

With a total investment of INR 1,337 crore ($161 million), Ampin has a cumulative solar project portfolio of 300 MWp across seven locations in Uttar Pradesh, out of which 120 MWp is operational and 180 MWp at advance stage of execution.
