Summary

Located in the Ananthapuramu Solar Park, 200 km from the city of Bangalore in India, Andhra Pradesh is the first large-scale solar installation developed by FRV in the country.

The company was awarded the project in a reverse auction conducted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) in 2016. The auction was part of the National Solar Mission program, launched by the Government of India, to meet its renewable targets and reach 100 GW of solar capacity installed in the country by 2022.

The 138 MM dc Solar Farm consists of two solar plants with a total area of 100 hectares. The two plants started operations in 2017 and since then they power approximately 35,000 Indian homes and avoid the emission of 190,000 tons of CO2 per year.
