Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), India’s foremost renewable energy enterprise and a global leader in the field, has activated a 180 MW solar power facility at Devikot in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. This plant has entered into a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).

Expected to generate approximately 540 million units of electricity annually, the 180 MW solar plant is set to power over 110,000 households while curbing approximately 0.39 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Employing next-generation bifacial solar PV modules and horizontal single-axis solar trackers (HSAT), the facility aims to optimize power generation by enhancing module efficiency and tracking sunlight throughout the day.

Furthermore, the plant features waterless robotic module cleaning systems, contributing to water conservation in the arid region of Jaisalmer. The Energy Network Operation Centre (ENOC), integrated into a secure digital cloud platform, enables real-time monitoring of AGEL’s renewable energy assets, thereby ensuring improved operational efficiency.

With the successful launch of this plant, AGEL’s operational solar portfolio has expanded to 6,243 MW, while its total operational renewable generation capacity stands at 9,784 MW, making it the largest in India. AGEL remains committed to advancing India’s renewable energy sector, thereby supporting the nation’s aspirations for energy security and facilitating its transition to a low-carbon economy.
