Amp Energy India has actually announced that it has actually commissioned among the biggest behind-the-meter solar projects in India for L&T Metro Rail-- Hyderabad, a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project in between the Government of Telangana and also among India's leading infrastructure company Larsen & Toubro.

The firm has actually mounted a 7.805 MW solar plant providing power to L&T in Hyderabad, Telangana for the metro project to supply solar energy to its 24 terminals and 2 depots in the city. The Power Acquisition Contract (PPA) with Amp for purchase of solar energy is for 25 years and will produce 11,300 MWh of green energy in a year, equivalent to minimizing around 8,000 MT of carbon emissions every year.

The Hyderabad Metro Rail Project will certainly meet 15 percent of the total electrical usage via solar power supplied by the project. The plant is just one of the largest behind-the-meter solar projects in India.

"Hyderabad is just one of the fastest-growing cities in India with the metro playing a key duty in giving efficient, secure as well as economical traveling. This campaign will certainly help us in decreasing our carbon impact and utilizing green energy to partially power our operations. We are happy to companion with Amp for this project that has actually helped accomplish our sustainability objectives," K V B Reddy, MD and Chief Executive Officer, L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited said.

The solar plant was fully commissioned on December 26, 2020, and also the project implementation was handled by following all compliances placed to handle the COVID-19 situation in India.

"Amp's solar project for Hyderabad Metro Rail Project is a futuristic infrastructure project- a top notch trusted RE system powering an environmentally friendly and also sustainable transportation system. We believe that projects like these will certainly give the best momentum for mass public transportation across cities in India to change to sustainable energy resources as well as help satisfy India's environment objectives," Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD, as well as CEO, Amp Energy India said.

Previously in December 2020, we had actually reported that the company had increased Tata Hitachi's solar plant to 10.5 MW making it the largest BTM (dispersed RE) project in Eastern India.

Tata Hitachi had partnered with Amp Energy to establish an onsite solar energy system at their center in Kharagpur, West Bengal. The project was a repeat order to Amp Energy from Tata Hitachi, which currently has a functional 5 MW solar project providing power to Tata Hitachi at their manufacturing facility facilities in Kharagpur because 2018. With this project, Amp has expanded the ability to 10.5 MW making it the biggest behind-the-meter (dispersed RE) project in Eastern India.
