Solar module manufacturer Waaree Energies has announced the commissioning of a 16 MW ground-mounted solar project, with a power generation capacity of more than 78,600 MWh per year.

The project was executed for Waacox Energy Pvt. Ltd in Gavhankund, Maharashtra, under the Agri feeder scheme of Maharashtra Govt for MAHAGENCO.

The plant has installed 60660 numbers of Waaree make 330wp Polycrystalline solar modules, two Inverter duty transformers of 6250KVA, & one 3500KVA, five inverters of 3125 kW.

This plant has been developed under the aegis of the Chief Minister's solar agriculture feeder program with a major advantage: it will ensure day-time reliable power to farmers without requiring any capital subsidy from the government. Rather, the project being cost-efficient will further reduce the burden of subsidy.

Commenting on the completion of this prestigious project, Hitesh Doshi, Chairman & Managing Director, Waaree Energies, said, “agriculture is a major consumer of electricity, accounting for one-fourth or one-third of consumption in many States, access to groundwater for irrigation depends on reliable and affordable electricity supply to run groundwater pumping. With the commissioning of this project, we shall be able to contribute toward addressing concerns of the livelihoods of the rural poor and the food security of the country. The timely commissioning of this project reiterates our commitment towards high quality both in terms of seamless execution and time-bounded delivery mechanisms.”

The company said that nearly two-thirds of the total irrigated area is powered by more than 2 crore electric and 75 lakh diesel pumps, this requires an urgent fix. This Maharashtra government initiative provides farmers, government, and discoms with a win-win solution, and provides the power sector with a much-needed farmer-centric but fiscally prudent pathway.

Waaree has solar PV module manufacturing capacity of 2 GW, and is one of the leading players in India in EPC services, project development, rooftop solutions, solar water pumps, and as an Independent Power Producer (IPP).
