The funding is a mixture of debt and a convertible-to-equity instrument, according to the article.
Jupiter International managing director Alok Garodia was cited as saying that the manufacturer intends to establish a greenfield integrated cell and module line of 2 GW in addition to a 500-MW cell line using monocrystalline passivated emitter and rear cell (PERC) technology that is currently under construction and due to be commissioned in the coming six months.
According to Edelweiss Alternative Asset Advisors executive vice president Kriti Mohan Ghosh, demand for Indian solar cells is poised for strong growth on the back of positive government policies.
