Country’s one of the leading renewable energy developers ReNew Power has commissioned a 300 MW wind power project in the Kutch District of Gujarat.

The project was previously awarded to ReNew’s operating subsidiary ReNew Wind Energy (AP2) Pvt Ltd in a competitive E-reverse auction conducted by state-owned Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).

Now, the wind energy plant will supply clean power to the states of Haryana and Orissa at a wholesale rate of Rs 2.44 (USD 0.034) per unit (kWh), a lower rate than that of power generated through conventional thermal power plants in the region.

The company claimed that this project will also provide direct employment to more than 200 people. With this commissioning, the company’s commissioned wind generation capacity reached 950 MW in Gujarat.

Commenting on the development, Sumant Sinha, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ReNew Power, said, “the commissioning of our wind farm project in the state of Gujarat is a significant achievement for everyone at ReNew Power. The team worked hard to put together one of the largest wind farms in the state, with 120 turbines, and  laid73 kms of extra high voltage transmission lines and over 330 kms of medium voltage transmission lines despite major disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is an important achievement for ReNew, and for India as the country continues down the path of decarbonization.”
