Adani Green switches on India’s first wind-solar hybrid power plant

Chennai, May 28 (UNI): Adani Hybrid Energy Jaisalmer One Limited (AHEJOL), a subsidiary of Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), on Saturday commissioned India’s first 390 MW wind-solar hybrid power plant at Jailsamer in Rajasthan.

This plant has a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) with tariff at Rs. 2.69 per kWh, well below the national level Average Power Procurement Cost (APPC), delivering access to affordable, modern, and clean energy to all, a company release here said.

This is the first ever wind and solar hybrid power generation plant in India. The hybrid power plant integrated through solar and wind power generation, harnesses the full potential of renewable energy by resolving the intermittency of the generation and provides a more reliable solution to meet the rising power demand.

“Wind-Solar Hybrid energy is an important aspect of our business strategy which aims to meet India’s growing need for green energy,” AGEL MD and CEO Vineet S. Jaain said.

“The commissioning of our hybrid plant is an incremental step towards meeting India’s sustainable energy goals. We are extremely proud of the unrelenting effort our team has put in to deliver India’s first wind-solar hybrid plant. This project is part of the first construction facility by international banks in Adani Green. It is commendable that the project was successfully executed amidst the uncertainties imposed by the global pandemic.”

With the successful commissioning of this plant, AGEL now has an operational capacity of 5.8 GW. This places AGEL’s total renewable portfolio of 20.4 GW well on track to meet its vision of 45 GW capacity by 2030.
