SB Energy is likely to invest in the development of 500 MW capacity under the 750 MW Rajasthan solar park project. The investment is expected to reduce the time required to build the project from 12-15 months to less than six months.
The 750 MW solar park is being developed by Essel Sauraya Urja Company of Rajasthan Limited, a joint venture of Essel Infra Projects Limited and the government of Rajasthan. The solar plants would be set up at Ugraas, Nagnechinagar and Dandhu villages in Jodhpur district (450 MW) and Lavan and Purohitsar villages in Jaisalmer district (300 MW) in the state. The entire project is expected to be completed by end-2019.
