AMP Energy has commissioned its second open access solar power project in Maharashtra. The plant has a capacity of 13.5 MW and is situated in Osmanabad. The electricity generated will be supplied to Orient Cement for operations.

AMP Energy and Orient Cement have signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for a period of 25 years on 13.5 MW project. “This partnership will provide the right impetus for other cement companies to transition towards 100 % renewable energy for reducing their costs and meeting their sustainability targets,” said Pinaki Bhattacharyya, MD and CEO of India group.

Before this project, Amp has developed projects in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. The capacities of open access projects are 30 MW and 42 MW respectively.
