India: Amp Energy, in a statement, said that it has announced the commissioning of an open access-based solar power project in Karnataka, for Bosch Ltd.

Located in Mallat Village, Raichur district of Karnataka, this is Amp Energy’s third open access project in Karnataka.

This solar open access facility will generate about 43 million kwh of green energy per year for Bosch Ltd and will meet about 40 % of the latter’s energy consumption.

This project will provide solar power to energize three Bosch’s plants / facilities in and around Bangalore and by switching to solar power, Bosch will also help mitigate about 31,000 T of CO2 per year, the Amp Energy statement said.

“We are thankful to the Bosch team for extending their continuous support to us since the beginning. With this partnership, we are sure Bosch will setup benchmarks for other conglomerates to follow to switch to clean energy for their growth in the country and move towards accomplishing their RE100 targets,” noted Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD & CEO, Amp Energy India.

According to information available, Amp Energy, inclusive of the newly commissioned project in Maharashtra, has a total of six open-access solar projects with an aggregate installed capacity of around 175 MW.
