Recently, Hareon Solar Technology and ReNew Power Ventures announced the commissioning of their 172 MW (143 MWAC) solar plant in Dichipally, Telangana, India.

Per the company, the 172 MW solar power plant would spread over approximately 1100 acres of land, and connect to the Dichipally substation in Telangana via a 220 kV transmission line. Hareon Solar supplied more than 520,000 multi-crystalline silicon solar modules for this project and the energy generated from this project is set to be sold under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to the Northern Power Distribution Company of Telangana.

Parag Sharma, Chief Operating Officer of ReNew Power, commented:

We are pleased to strengthen our leadership position in the state of Telangana and contribute to its mission to tap into its solar potential. The Dichipally solar farm was commissioned in partnership with Hareon Solar and is the largest solar plant in Telangana. The successful commissioning of this project will go a long way to enhance our already successful relationship with Hareon Solar, one of our valued partners since 2015.

According to Hareon, they have collaborated with ReNew Power to jointly develop, build and operate solar projects of approximately 300 MW generation capacity over the last two years all over India.
