Adani Group commissions India's large solar power plant

Adani Enterprises Ltd. said its group had commissioned a 40 MW solar power plant in Kutch district, Gujarat, the country's largest solar plant in a record time of 150 days.

The solar power plant marks Adani's first big foray in the renewable energy sector. Going forward, Adani plans to expand the capacity of this plant to 100 MW.

The solar power plant is using Solar PV Technology and has over 400,000 Solar PV modules mounted on 21,600 structures, which are erected on 130,000 foundations.

The company said the power generated from this solar plant would be evacuated through a 66kV line linked to a substation in Netra, located 20 kms away from the project site. The company bagged the contract in 2009 under Gujarat Solar Power Policy of 2009.
