Armstrong Energy Global Limited today connected its first solar power plant at Rajahmundry, in Andhra Pradesh. The site has a capacity of 1 MWp, and was built using Canadian Solar panels on a tracking system. The electricity generated is being sold to an industrial customer under a long-term power purchase agreement.
The Company will shortly start to expand the power plant to 5 MWp, and has already purchased the land for this extension.
Ramnath Nandakumar, the Managing Director of Armstrong Energy Global said, ‘This is an exciting day for the company. It has taken two years to get here, but we have delivered on the project exactly as we said that we would. And this is just the first step for the company, as we try and meet our target of installing 1 GWp of solar pv in India by 2020.’
