Solar Grouped Project by ACME
The Solar Grouped Project by ACME has 11 project for a combined installed capacity of 381.5 MW. These solar projects are located on various sites throughout India within the following states: Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Chattishgarh, Telangana, Odisha, and Uttrakhand.
The grouped project was built to generate power using solar energy and to sell the renewable power to the various state grids. Electricity delivered by the projects would have otherwise been generated by the operation of grid-connected coal power plants and by the addition of new fossil fuel generation sources into the Indian grid. The revenue from the sale of carbon offsets was necessary to build as well as operate and maintain the project.
The Solar Grouped Project by ACME provides 747,117 MWh of clean, renewable energy annually, which is enough to power 162,558 homes for an average family of four. The project created local employment opportunities during the construction and operation phases. Renewable energy development has led to infrastructure development in the region, such as the expansion of roads and access to improved power generation for local businesses, and improved communication with nearby cities.
