This plant has a power purchase agreement with Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) at Rs. 2.67/kWh for a period of 25 years. With this commissioning, AGEL’s total operational renewable capacity has now reached 3,125 MW.
The plant will be connected to company’s state-of-the-art Energy Network Operation Centre that continuously monitors and analyses performance of over 80 solar and wind plants across diverse locations in India.
With the commissioning of this project, AGEL now has total renewable capacity of 14,795 MW including 11,670 MW awarded and under implementation projects.
Gujarat contributes to nearly 13% of the renewable energy production in India. The state with a generation capacity of 30 GW presents tremendous opportunities of growth in the renewable energy sector.
