Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL) has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary ASE4PL has commissioned 100 MW (2 x 50 MW) solar power plants at Jalalabad in Shahjahanpur district and Sahaswan in Budaun district of Uttar Pradesh (UP). As per the firm, its team of experts made it possible to commission the plants almost 1 month ahead of their scheduled commissioning date. 

Both the plants have Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) at Rs 3.22/kWh and 3.19/kWh, for a period of 25 years.

“AGEL’s Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC) platform which has continuously demonstrated and aided us in achieving superior operational performance of our entire solar and wind plants spread across diverse locations in India, will also embrace these two commissioned solar power plants for delivering consistent performance,” the firm issued in a statement.

With the commissioning of the two 50 MW solar plants, the firm has added a capacity of 700 MW capacity since the beginning of challenging COVID-19 pandemic crisis. This places AGEL’s total renewable portfolio of 14,815 MW well on track to reach its vision of 25 GW capacity by 2025.

Vneet S. Jaain, MD & CEO, Adani Green Energy said, “the Company’s approach of 3 years of advanced site resource estimation, design planning, supply chain assurance with our team’s commitment and ability to deliver projects with great focus, makes it possible for us to execute the projects ahead of committed schedule. It also asserts our expertise in executing and operating the plants. With this, we continue to strengthen our advancement towards our long-term vision to achieve renewable capacity of 25 GW by 2025 through a mix of strategic approach and operational excellence.”

Over the last month, the firm has announced the commissioning of an additional 125 MW worth of solar projects. 

In December 2020, the firm had announced that Adani Solar Energy Kutchh Two had commissioned a 100 MW ac solar power project at Khirsara, Gujarat, ahead of its scheduled COD according to its 25-year-long Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam India (GUVNL).
