Adani Green Energy (AGEL), has installed 600 MW of co-located Solar-Wind Hybrid power plants at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. For 25 years, the plant is covered by Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with SECI at Rs 2.69/kwh.
This hybrid power plant, which consists of 600 MW solar and 150 MW wind plants, was implemented using cutting-edge technology. To capture the maximum amount of energy from the sun, the solar plant employs technologically superior Bifacial PV module and Horizontal Single-Axis Tracker (HSAT). The Nation will benefit from optimal use of the transmission network by having a co-located Hybrid Power Plant. This will also reduce intermittency in RE power.
This 600 MW Hybrid plant is housed in two AGEL subsidiaries viz. Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer Two (AHEJ2L) and Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer Three (AHEJ3L).
AGEL now boasts a total operating generation capacity of 6.7 GW. This includes a hybrid power generation capability of 1 GW, the largest in the world. AGEL’s total renewable portfolio now stands at 20.4 GW, which is well within reach of its goal of reaching 45 GW capacity by 2030.
Earlier in May this year, Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer One Limited (AHEJOL), a subsidiary of Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL) had announced commissioning of 390 MW hybrid wind-solar power plant in Jaisalmer. The country’s first-ever wind and solar hybrid power plant entered into a PPA with SECI for tariff of Rs. 2.69 per kWh.
