ACME Cleantech Solutions, a renewable energy developer in India, has commissioned 100MW solar PV plants in Rajasthan.
A total of five plants of 20MW each will be located in Tehsil Bap, Jodhpur. They come as part of India’s National Solar Mission Phase-II.
The power generated from the projects will be evacuated through a 132kV line to supply electricity to the state of Rajasthan under a Power Purchase Agreement signed with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).
Manoj Kumar Upadhyay, ACME founder and chairman, said ACME now has 165MWp operational capacities across Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.
He added: “At this crucial juncture, I thank [the] Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, SECI and the Government of Rajasthan in helping us deliver this prestigious project. I also extend greetings to the lending partners and other financial institutions: Asian Development Bank, International Finance Corporation, Yes Bank Limited collectively for extending their support which is very important for the successful commission of this project.”
ACME Solar took 150 days to commission the project.
In February, the firm was also selected to build 74MW of PV in the state of Punjab.
