September 26 (Solar) – Indian firm Acme Solar Holdings Pvt Ltd has put on stream a 200-MW photovoltaic (PV) park within the Bhadla solar complex in the state of Rajasthan.
The independent power producer (IPP) now has 2,400 MWp of operational solar PV capacity, while its total solar project portfolio exceeds 5,500 MWp, it said in a press release last week.
The 200-MW plant was constructed using 1,500 V technology at an overall cost of INR 9.8 billion (USD 134.8m/EUR 114.6m). Acme secured the 200-MW project in a tender held by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) in May last year after placing a bid of INR 2.44 per kWh. The tariff, quoted in the 500-MW Bhadla Phase-III Solar Park auction, is the record low for Indian solar tariffs, which have been moving up since then.
