With this latest tender, SJVN Green Energy continues to increase its procurement of solar modules to build projects across India, and most recently signed a supply agreement with Chinese solar manufacturer GCL SI for 550MW of PV modules. The modules will be used for two solar projects located in the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra.

This was not the first supply agreement inked by GCL SI this year, as early in January it had secured a 1.1GW PV module supply with NTPC Renewable Energy (NTPCREL), a subsidiary of Indian utility NTPC, the largest module supply for the utility with a single provider.
