Avaada Energy, an arm of Avaada Group, one of the leading integrated energy enterprises in India with business interests across the energy transition value chain, has won the 421 MW (DC) ISTS-connected Solar PV bid in an auction conducted by RECPDCL on behalf of Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC).
DVC is a leading PSU that generates and distributes power in the Damodar River area, spread across Jharkhand and West Bengal in Eastern India.
The project was awarded through competitive bidding, followed by an e-Reverse auction in which Avaada emerged as the winner with a quoted tariff of INR. 2.70/kWh (USD 0.03). As per bid terms, PPA will be inked between two entities for 25 years, and the project will be commissioned within 18 months.
The plant is expected to generate about 750 million units annually which will help reduce 6,98,250 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions annually. The solar project can potentially power approximately 5 lakh households with green energy.
Speaking on this development, Vineet Mittal, Chairman of Avaada Group, said, "India is one of the fastest-growing markets for renewable energy globally. With ambitious targets and commitments to a green future, we are confident that massive opportunities will unlock. At Avaada, we endeavour to contribute to clean energy development and ensure a sustainable future for posterity. We consider this a victory for us at Avaada Group and for stakeholders' vision for a green & sustainable world."
