Lead-acid battery manufacturer Exide Industries has entered into 26-30% equity shareholding agreement with Singapore-based Cleantech Solar Energy for three captive solar power plants to be set up for its manufacturing units in Tamil Nadu, Haryana and Maharashtra.
The floating solar power plant—to be developed by AM International’ Greenam Energy—will be located in Tuticorin plant of Southern Petrochemical Industries Corporation (SPIC). The power generated will be used to meet SPIC’s electricity requirements and the excess will be sold to the state power utilities.
The solar manufacturer is installing three rooftop systems in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu for polypropylene woven fabric maker Klene Paks. The units will have a cumulative capacity of 7.63 MW.
Following a petition by National Solar Energy Federation of India (NSEFI), Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC) stated that the State Load Dispatch Centre (SLDC) cannot curtail renewable power at convenience.
Spanish-German renewable energy developer Siemens Gamesa provided engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) support for the 10 MW photovoltaic (PV) solar farm near Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.
State-owned NLC India Ltd – formerly the Neyveli Lignite Corporation – has commissioned 150 MW of solar power projects at Ramanathapuram and Virudhanagar Districts of Tamil Nadu, taking its total installed solar power capacity in the state to 591 MW.
The organization responsible for coordinating India’s push for 100 GW of new solar capacity by 2022 has had a busy week. But, as last year illustrated, tenders alone are not always a guarantee of new generation assets.
