Amp Energy India has commissioned a 7.8 MW solar plant for Larsen & Toubro’s metro rail project in Hyderabad. The plant will be one of the largest behind-the-meter solar projects in India and will power L&T metro rail’s 24 stations and two depots in the city of Hyderabad in Telangana. A power purchase agreement has been signed between the parties for 25 years. The plant was commissioned on December 26, 2020 and its execution was carried out in line with Covid-19 protocols. Now, 15 per cent of Hyderabad Metro Rail’s total electricity consumption will be met by this project, as it will generate 11,300 MWh of green energy in a year and avoid approximately 8,000 metric tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
Amp Energy India provides dispatchable clean energy to C&I and utility customers. The company has a portfolio of 1.5 GW and a strong pipeline of 3 GW of renewable energy assets and 2.2 GWh of energy storage assets across 15 states in India. In December 2020, Tata Hitachi partnered with Amp Energy to set up an onsite solar power unit at their facility in Kharagpur, West Bengal. The project has a cumulative capacity of 5 MW and will generate 7,150 MWh of green energy in a year, equivalent to reducing 5,055 MT of carbon emissions annually.
