This milestone project is poised to make a substantial impact on the region’s energy infrastructure and aligns with India’s broader goals of expanding its renewable energy capacity and reducing dependence on non-renewable sources. Apraava Energy continues to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of clean and sustainable energy solutions in the country.

Commenting on the project win, Rajiv Ranjan Mishra, Managing Director, Apraava Energy, said, “This is our third wind project in the state of Karnataka, which offers tremendous opportunities for RE growth. With the rich experience of being early adopters of wind power generation in the country, coupled with expertise of working with marquee O&M partners, we aim to build the project with the highest operational standards. The government’s efforts through SECI and other federal agencies have been instrumental in bringing much-needed transparency to the bids, resulting in the accelerated growth of renewable energy and bringing the nation closer to its ambitious energy transition goals.” 

As part of the agreement, Apraava Energy will be responsible for acquiring the land, developing the wind farm, and establishing the grid infrastructure up to the metering point at the ISTS grid substation.
