Godawari Power & Ispat Ltd (GPIL) on Tuesday said its 70 MW captive solar power plant in Chhattisgarh has commenced commercial operations.
The plant began commercial operations on Saturday, GPIL said in a regulatory filing.
The 70 MWP captive solar PV power plant at Rajnandgaon, Chhattisgarh has been commissioned and duly synchronised with the grid and charged on August 6, 2022, it said.
GPIL, part of the Raipur-based Hira Group of Industries, manufactures long products of steel, mainly steel wire. It also produces sponge iron, billets, ferro alloys, among others.
According to the filing, the power generated from the plant will be captively consumed to meet the enhanced electricity requirement for its integrated steel plant, helping reduce the high cost energy being purchased from state discoms.
