Azure Power, a leading independent solar power producer in India, has announced that it has commissioned a 100-megawatt (MW) solar power plant in Andhra Pradesh.

The project was auctioned by NTPC, which has a AAA debt rating and is the Government of India’s largest power utility. The solar plant has been set up at Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park with a total capacity of 1,000 MWs.
