Solar EPC service expert, Oriano Solar has announced the completion of nine solar PV power projects worth a combined 13.75 MW for Cleantech Solar.
The nine projects have been developed across seven states and union territories for the clean energy solutions provider over the last six months. Projects have been set up in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Rajasthan, and Puducherry. These plants will generate clean energy that will offset annual carbon dioxide emission of 29,300 metric tons and has already created more than 310 jobs.
