India’s Adani Green Energy Ltd (BOM:541450) has commissioned a 450-MW hybrid wind and solar power plant in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, the renewables arm of India’s Adani Group said today.
The hybrid power generator is made up of 420 MW of solar and 105 MW of wind capacity. It will operate under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), priced at INR 2.67 (USD 0.033/EUR 0.031) per kWh.
Adani Green said the new facility makes it the world’s largest wind-solar hybrid power developer with an operational hybrid power generation capacity of 1,440 MW. In May, it brought online India's first hybrid power plant of 390 MW and then the company switched on the world’s largest co-located hybrid power plant of 600 MW in September. The three hybrid facilities are all located at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.
The new facility brings Adani Green’s total operational generation capacity to 7.17 GW. The company says it has a total renewables portfolio of 20.4 GW including operating, under-construction and awarded assets.
