Total Eren and EDF Renewables have announced the signing of four 25-year long term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), for four solar power projects totaling 716 MW of installed capacities in northern India. These projects have been presented to EDEN Renewables India, their solar PV (equally owned) joint venture in India.
With the scheduled production of nearly 1,200 GWh per year, these solar PV projects will generate the energy prerequisite to meet the annual electricity needs of 1.1 million Indian households. Their construction is due to start by the end of this year and commissioning is expected towards the end of 2020.
Fabienne Demol, Executive Vice President – Global Head of Business Development of Total Eren, said, “We are delighted to have signed these PPAs for our four solar power plants, which will contribute to meeting the energy needs of the population in Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan and to the development of renewable energy projects locally. We are multiplying our Indian installed capacity by four! These signatures represent an important milestone in our development in this market, which still offers significant growth opportunities. I look forward to working on other renewable energy projects in India with our partner EDF Renewables and through our joint subsidiary EDEN Renewables India, which plays a key role in achieving our local ambitions.”
