According to the statement, AGEL has announced the execution of a PPA with the SECI to supply 1,799 MW of solar power. “We are glad to conclude the largest green PPA and enable a sustainable energy landscape. Aligned to India’s target of 500 GW non-fossil fuel capacity by 2030, Adani Green is determined to deliver in excess of 45 GW renewable energy, a five-fold increase from our current operating portfolio,” Amit Singh, CEO, AGEL, said in the statement.

The Adani Group company has progressed on the commitments of the SECI manufacturing-linked solar photovoltaic tender, including setting up 2 GW of photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing facilities. “AGEL has already commissioned a solar PV cell and module manufacturing plant with a capacity of 2 GW per annum through its associate company Mundra Solar Energy Ltd (MSEL),” it stated.
