ReNew Power has joined the global club of top renewable power generation companies by becoming the eleventh firm to reach 5,000 megawatt (MW) of installed capacity.
Of this, 3,100 Mw is wind and 1,900 Mw is solar.
On Sunday it commissioned a 250 Mw plant in Rajasthan’s Bikaner. The plant with robotic cleaning technology is the second-largest solar firm of ReNew — the first being in Maharashtra.
Power from the Bikaner plant would be supplied at Rs 2.72 a kilowatt per hour (unit) to Maharashtra.
ReNew’s capacity in India is followed by 3,700 Mw of Greenko, 2,700 Mw of Tatas, 2,300 Mw of Adani, and 2,000 Mw of ACME.
The company would be achieving 8,000 Mw capacity in another eight months, with additional 3,000 Mw coming largely from tenders of NTPC and Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).
Currently, the company has utility scale units in eight states, including Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu. In 20 states, the company has distributed solar capacity.
The total share of NTPC and SECI capacity would jump from the current 10 per cent to 40 per cent for the company when it reaches 8,000 Mw.
The next 3,000-Mw capacity is already under construction.
