Apraava Energy has completed a solar electrification project which began in 2020 to meet the energy needs of over 3687 households around its Satpura Transco Private Ltd (STPL) transmission project in Madhya Pradesh. The project was implemented in partnership with SELCO Foundation in 14 villages around Seoni Malwa in Hoshangabad district and Ashta in Sehore district.
The project aimed to meet the various challenges faced by the villagers due to inconsistent power supply. Consequently, 52 solar street lights have been set up in the common areas of the villages. Common-use appliances such as fans and lights powered by solar energy have also been installed in anganwadis. The solutions implemented under the initiative have the capacity to generate approximately 13.9 MWh per year of solar power and lead to a reduction in carbon emissions of approximately 11.2 tonnes per year.
Apraava Energy is a diversified power company, jointly owned by the CLP Group. The company was founded in 2002 and its diverse portfolio comprises 3,150 MW of installed capacity. The company aims to invest in low-carbon growth areas, including renewable energy, power transmission and distribution, as well as other non-generation, customer-focused energy businesses.
