AmpIn Energy Transition secures 6 MW solar project with Nagpur Metro Rail


AmpIn Energy Transition (formerly Amp Energy India) has signed a 25-year power purchase agreement for a 6 MWp solar project with the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corp. Ltd (MMRCL), Nagpur Metro Rail Project.

This marks AmpIn’s third solar project for a metro rail and its inaugural metro venture in Maharashtra, following two successfully operating solar projects for L&T Metro and Kochi Metro.

AmpIn will develop the total capacity of this solar project, i.e., 6 MWp, in two packages of 2.5 MWp and 3.5 MWp, respectively.

“The total capacity would be distributed across 19 sites including 13 metro station rooftop GI sheds, two depot building rooftop RCC installations, one admin building RCC installation, and three station track walls,” stated AmpIn.

The solar project is expected to replace 36% of grid power with solar power for Nagpur Metro, resulting in 41% savings per unit. In terms of environmental impact, the project will help offset approx. 7,000 MT of CO2 annually over its lifetime.

MMRCL is a special purpose company jointly sponsored by the Government of Maharashtra and the Government of India in 2015 for the implementation of all metro projects in Maharashtra outside Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

AmpIn Energy Transition is a renewable energy transition platform with a total portfolio of 3 GWp spread across 17 states in the country. The company is headquartered in New Delhi with regional offices in Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata. AmpIn has a balanced portfolio of C&I and utility customers, providing complete renewable energy transition solutions while reducing their operating costs.
