In June 2018, we successfully connected our first Indian utility-scale solar plant in Wagdari, Maharashtra. The 60 MWp project was financed in partnership with UK Climate Investments (UKCI), a joint venture between the Green Investment Group and the UK Government’s Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The commissioning of the 60 MWp solar farm in Wagdari, Maharashtra marks a significant milestone for Lightsource BP as our first utility solar asset commissioned in India. The project is one of the first to be completed from this vintage of Solar Energy Corporation India (SECI) tenders and in line with the Power Purchase Agreement time schedule.
We won the offtaker contract through a competitive 450 MW tender process by the Government of India, managed by SECI. The project comprises 200,000 LONGi Solar photovoltaic panels ground-mounted across 240 acres, with construction and technical expertise provided by Sterling & Wilson, and project finance provided by Rabobank.
