SBI Will Lend Rs 1,240 Cr. For Solar Projects

The State Bank of India (SBI) has struck a credit deal worth 150 million euros (Rs 1,240 crore) with the German development bank KfW to build solar projects.


The long-term financing under the Indo-German solar collaboration would support new and future capacity in the solar industry, contributing to the country’s COP26 targets.

New Delhi and Berlin signed a memorandum of understanding in 2015 to promote solar energy through technological and financial cooperation. Germany stated its willingness to give concessional loans to India in the amount of 1 billion euros through KfW under this arrangement.

The successful completion of phase 1 of SBI and KfW’s solar cooperation promotion lays the stage for the current phase 2 of this partnership. With this facility, he added, the bank has taken another step towards sustainable financing arrangements for meeting the nation’s renewable capacity goals and upholding environmental and social standards.
