Azure Power commissions 1st private solar project in the country to power Indo-Pak Border Azure Power has announced that it has commissioned 5MW capacity solar plant in Sarkaritala, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan to electrify the border posts around the region. Azure Power signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), the designated agency for implementation of Solar PV Projects for the Solarization of Indo-Pak Borders, to supply power for 25 years. With the commissioning of this project, Azure Power becomes the first private solar power producer in the country to supply power to border outposts through the solar route under The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission policy. The government can save crores of rupees spent every year on power and diesel used in generators with this free energy. The project was built under extremely harsh environment. The remote location has several sand dunes with constant shifting contours, restricted transportation and tele-connectivity. Considering the complexity of the project, Azure Power delivered the project in a commendable timeframe of two months.
