“The future is hybrid in renewable energy. Customers no longer need to have just plain vanilla wind or solar. Customers demand affordable, green, and reliable power. Karnataka is one of the few states that has both solar and wind potential. Pratik Agarwal, managing director, Vedanta Group unit Sterlite Power said that the state also offers attractive locations for pumped hydro storage. This is an important component of the 24-hour value chain.”

ReNew Power, ABC Cleantech, and ACME Solar claimed they would each bring in Rs. 50,000 crore to Karnataka. However, Sterlite Power stated that it would invest Rs. 50,000 in the state.
