Welspun commissions Solar Project in Karnataka

Welspun Energy Limited (WEL) has commissioned its first solar project in Karnataka of 8.02 (DC) MW capacity, four months ahead of schedule. The 8.02 (DC) MW Karnataka project located in Chitradurga district was developed by WEL’s step down subsidiary Welspun Solar Kannada Pvt. Ltd. under the Karnataka State Policy. 
As per the PPA signed with Mangalore Electric Supply Company (MESCOM), the power plant was scheduled to begin commercial operations only by March 2014. Keeping up its impeccable execution track record, WEL has commissioned this project well before the timeline. This project is one of the many solar and wind projects of WEL being developed in Karnataka and will contribute to the state’s energy needs. This project will address Karnataka’s annual peak deficit of 27.4 per cent by generating 12.264 Mn kWh annually, enough to power 33,600 households. The solar project will mitigate 11,651 tons of carbon emissions annually.
