Adani Begins Operating 700MW Hybrid Power Plant in India

Adani Green Energy, the renewable energy arm of Indian conglomerate Adani Group, has commenced operations at its fourth wind-solar hybrid power plant in Rajasthan. The 600 MW solar and 510 MW wind power plant is equipped with bifacial solar PV modules and horizontal single-axis tracker systems to optimize solar energy generation. The combined generation capacity of the plant is 700 MW and has a 25-year power purchase agreement at Rs 3.24/kWh. The company claims that the plant has been designed to achieve a capacity utilization factor of at least 50% by mitigating the intermittency of renewable energy sources, thereby providing a more reliable solution to meet the growing demand for power. With this new addition, Adani Green Energy’s wind-solar hybrid portfolio has reached 2,140 MW, while its operating renewable portfolio in India has now totaled 8,024 MW.
