A joint venture (JV) between ReNew Power and Hareon Solar, one of China’s largest solar energy companies, has commissioned a 72 MW project in Andhra Pradesh.
The project, located across two districts of Andhra Pradesh, Kurnool, and Prakasam, is expected to generate 115 million units of energy per year, and is connected to the 132/33kV Adoni substation and 132/33kV Cumbum substation, respectively. The project was part of the competitive bidding conducted in November 2014 by two distribution utilities of Andhra Pradesh, namely, Southern Power Distribution Company of Andhra Pradesh (APSPDCL), and Eastern Power Distribution Company (APEPDCL). The power generated from this project will be sold under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with APSPDCL. The project was built using Hareon Solar’s high efficiency multi-crystalline silicon solar modules.
