With the signing of the Promoters Agreement, both NHPC and GEDCOL agree to form a Joint Venture Company (JVC) in the ratio of 74:26 shareholding.

Also, the company would have an authorised share capital of Rs 500 crore and the initial paid-up share capital would be Rs 10 crore.
During the first stage, the 300 MW of floating solar capacity would be installed in the reservoir of Rengali H.E. project.
