Azure Power, one of India’s leading independent solar power producers, has won a 5MW rooftop solar power project in a bid conducted by New & Renewable Energy Development Corporation of Andhra Pradesh Limited. Azure will provide power to various Government buildings in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh for 25 years.


The company provides rooftop solar power solutions for commercial, industrial, government, and institutional customers in cities across India to lower their energy bill and meet their greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. With nearly 200 MWs of high quality, operating and committed solar assets across 23 states, it has one of the largest rooftop portfolios in the country.


As well as Government of India-backed entities, Azure customers include large commercial real estate companies, a leading global chain of premium hotels, distribution companies in smart cities, warehouses, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, Indian Railways, a Delhi water utility company and various Government of India Ministries.


“Given our strong presence in Andhra Pradesh of 200MWs in the utility segment, our foray into rooftop in the state is a natural extension of our expertise in implementing solar power projects,” said Vishal Jain of Azure Roof Power.


“With this win, we are glad to expand our presence in the state and make a contribution towards the initiative of the government of Andhra Pradesh to go solar.”
