ReNew Power to buy 260 MW operational solar in Telangana

Gurugram-based ReNew Power Limited announced that it has signed a definitive purchase agreement (DPA) to acquire 260 megawatts (MW) of operational solar projects in Telangana.

In addition, the company also inked an agreement to acquire a 99 MW hydropower project situated in Uttarakhand.

The company acquired solar and hydropower projects for Rs 28.5 billion with a total capacity of 359 MW. The projects are anticipated to generate earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) of about Rs 3.8 billion to Rs 4 billion yearly.

The company said the solar projects have been working for about four years and have power purchase agreements (PPA) of 25-year with Northern Power Distribution Company of Telangana Limited (TSNPDCL) and Southern Power Distribution Company of Telangana Limited (TSSPDCL).

The company told the media that the acquired projects are located near to the existing solar projects of the company in Telangana that would give opportunities to raise productivity, reduce operation and maintenance expenses.

The company would also utilise its monitoring and analytical technology to increase the output of these projects.

ReNew Power also acquired L&T Uttaranchal hydropower from L&T power development, a subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T).

L&T Uttaranchal Hydropower owns the Singoli Bhatwari hydroelectric project of 99 MW. In December 2020, the project became operational and is expected to have a remaining life of about 35 years. The hydropower project is expected to have a net billed generation of 360 million units yearly.

Earlier this month, the independent power producer inked a PPA with Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) to provide 400 MW of round-the-clock (RTC) renewable power. The 25 year PPA has a tariff of Rs 2.90 kWh for the first year.
