Indian solar power producer Welspun Renewables Energy Pvt Ltd said today it has commissioned a solar plant in Maharashtra state with a capacity of 52 MW in direct current (DC).
The company realised the Baramati project in cooperation with Maharashtra State Power Generation Co Ltd, also known as Mahagenco. It is the first solar scheme in the state implemented under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
Welspun Renewables was in charge of part-finance, design and commissioning of the facility, which is able to produce enough electricity to meet the annual power consumption of about 240,000 local homes.
Welspun Renewables expects to commission a total of 1,000 MW in 2015. The company has 25-year power purchase agreements (PPA) in place for all of its current operating capacity, it said.
