In February, successfully commissioned a 200 MW solar power project for Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation (APGENCO). The power generated by the solar plant is expected to power nearly 1,50,000 homes once connected to the grid. The plant, situated in district Anatapuramu, Andhra Pradesh, and is segregated into 2 blocks of 100 MW each for better management and higher efficiency.

The project is expected to produce 446 MU of energy annually and will reduce 210 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions every year. The West Bengal-based manufacturer will also carry out a comprehensive Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of the plant for a period of 5 years from the date of commissioning.
