Azure Power wins 600 MW solar project

Azure Power, one of India’s leading independent solar power producers, has won a 600 MW solar power project through an auction conducted by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), a Government of India enterprise and a company with an AA+ domestic debt rating by ICRA, a Moody’s Company.

The project is the largest solar auction in India and also the first Interstate Transmission System (ISTS) grid connected solar PV project auctioned by SECI. Azure Power expects to sign a 25-year power purchase agreement with SECI to supply power. The project can be developed outside a solar park anywhere in India and is expected to be commissioned by 2020.

The 600 MWs win, out of the total 2,000 MWs tendered in the auction, is the largest allocation of any solar auction in India.
