It has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI) and Punjab State Power Corp. Ltd. (PSPCL) for around 1.5 GW of utility-scale solar. Agreements have also been signed with multiple corporate buyers for the long-term supply of renewable energy. The new utility-solar projects will be located in the western state of Rajasthan and will supply power at flat tariffs over periods of 25 years.

“Two PPAs of 600 MW and 375 MW are under the SECI Rajasthan IV scheme, where ReNew will supply electricity at INR 2.18 ($0.029)/kWh.
