Avaada Energy has won 1,400 MW DC solar project from NHPC Limited at a tariff of Rs 2.53 per kWh. The project has been won under tariff-based competitive bidding process. Avaada Energy will sign power purchase agreement with NHPC Limited for a period of 25 years. The project is expected to be commissioned within 24 months.
