- Improvement in Wind CUF is backed by technologically advanced WTGs, improved plant availability now at 96% and improved wind speed.
- High Solar-Wind Hybrid CUF is backed by technologically advanced solar modules and WTGs, high plant availability of ~ 100% and high grid availability of ~ 100%.
Robust growth in revenue and EBITDA from power supply is backed by capacity addition, improved solar and wind CUF and high hybrid CUF.
Consistent EBITDA margin backed by high solar, wind and hybrid CUF and cost efficiencies brought in through real time centralized monitoring through Energy Network Operation Center.
