Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer One Limited (AHEJOL), a subsidiary of Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL) has commissioned a 390 MW hybrid wind-solar power plant in Jaisalmer.
The country’s first-ever wind and solar hybrid power plant has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) with tariff of Rs. 2.69 per kWh. AGEL stated in a regulatory filing that the cost of generating electricity at 2.69 per kWh is well below the average power procurement cost (APPC) at the national level.
AGEL now has a 5.8 GW operational capacity, thanks to the successful commissioning. AGEL’s total renewable portfolio now stands at 20.4 GW, which is well within its reach to achieve its goal of 45 GW capacity by 2030.
The hybrid power plant, which combines solar and wind power generationy, taps into the full potential of renewable energies. It solves intermittency and offers a reliable solution for rising power demand.
Adani Green Energy Ltd’s Vneet S. Jaain, MD and CEO, stated that Wind-Solar Hybrid Energy is an important part of their business strategy. It aims to address India’s growing demand for green energy. The commissioning of the hybrid plant is an incremental step towards achieving India’s sustainable energy goals. We are proud of the hard work that our team put into delivering India’s first hybrid wind-solar plant. This project was part of Adani Green’s first construction facility. It is admirable that this project was completed despite the uncertainty imposed by the global pandemic.
