Adani Green Commissions 180 MW Solar Project In Rajasthan

As the end of the financial year approaches, India’s sorry solar capacity addition figures for the year got a late boost with the commissioning of the project from Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL).

AGEL, India’s largest and one of the world’s leading renewable energy (RE) companies, has commissioned a 180 MW solar power plant at Devikot in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. The plant has a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).

The 180 MW solar plant will produce approximately 540 million electricity units annually. Next-generation bifacial solar PV modules and horizontal single axis solar trackers (HSAT) have been deployed to maximise generation through better efficiency of modules and tracking the sun throughout the day.

The plant is equipped with waterless robotic module cleaning systems, enabling water conservation in the barren region of Jaisalmer. The Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC), anchored in the secured digital cloud platform, enables real-time monitoring of AGEL’s renewable energy assets, leading to enhanced operational performance.

With the successful commissioning of this plant, AGEL’s operational solar portfolio has increased to 6,243 MW, and the total operational renewable generation capacity to 9,784 MW, the largest in India. With a target of a 45 GW green energy portfolio by 2030, AGEL’s operating portfolio is certified ‘water positive for plants of more than 200 MW capacity’, ‘single-use plastic free’ and ‘zero waste-to-landfill’, a testament to the company’s commitment of powering sustainable growth.

The Rajasthan plant is probably the last of the major solar plants that will be commissioned this fiscal, as a long weekend looms, ensuring that the Fy2024 figures will be a poor statement of intent from the country with an ambitious target of adding 25 GW plus of solar energy capacity each year to 2030.
