Suzlon Energy said it has finished commissioning its entire solar order book of 340 megawatt and will focus on hybrid solar-wind projects going forward. The company will also provide operation and maintenance services for these projects for 25 years.
Out of the 340 MW erected, 210 MW was erected in Telangana, 60 MW in Rajasthan and 70 MW in Maharashtra.
J.P. Chalasani, Group CEO of Suzlon said the company will focus more on hybrid solar-cum-wind projects going forward.
Wind-Solar hybrid projects are more cost-efficient compared to standalone farms as both technologies can share common infrastructure such as inverters and cables and can help further lower the levelised cost of energy generated.
Chalasani also said Suzlon has a large ‘land bank’ and will utilize it to put up the projects.
