Renewable independent power producer (IPP) Amp Energy India has commissioned a 30 MW open access solar power project for Bosch Ltd in Karnataka.

Bosch, a leading supplier of technology and services in the areas of mobility solutions, industrial technology, consumer goods, and energy and building technology in India, has partnered with Amp Energy India for its solar energy requirements.

Further, solar power would be provided from Amp Energy India’s open access facility in Mallat Village, Raichur district in Karnataka.

Moreover, this is Amp’s third open access solar power project in the state of Karnataka.

In this regard, the two organisations have signed a 25 years power purchase agreement (PPA) for the procurement of solar electricity.

Commenting on the commissioning of the project, Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD and CEO of Amp Energy India, said “solar energy adoption in India by top companies in India has seen major growth over the last few years, especially post the challenges posed by the COVID pandemic. We are thankful to the Bosch team for extending their continuous support to us since the beginning. With this partnership, we are sure Bosch will set up benchmarks for other conglomerates to follow to switch to clean energy for their growth in the country and move towards accomplishing their RE100 targets.”

Also, the solar open-access facility would generate about 43MUs of green energy per year for Bosch and would meet about 40 per cent of their energy consumption.

On partnering with Amp Energy India, Soumitra Bhattacharya, Managing Director of Bosch Ltd and Regional President of Bosch Group in India, said, “Bosch globally is stepping up its investments in green energy thereby investing in renewable in-house generation power plants and entering into exclusive long-term purchase agreements with partners like Amp Energy. India is an important and key market for us, and we would like to help the country reach its true potential. We are happy to partner with Amp Energy for this project that has helped achieve our sustainability objectives in a timely manner.”

Meanwhile, the project would provide solar power to energize three plants of Bosch in and around Bangalore, and would also help the company to mitigate about 31,000 tons of CO2 per annum.
