Welspun Energy unveils 55 MW solar plant in Rajasthan
Welspun Energy Ltd on Wednesday unveiled a 55-MW solar plant project in Rajasthan as per reports. The plant will generate 90 million units of electricity annually.
Welspun said it had a target to invest Rs 15,000 crore to set up 1,750 MW of renewable energy projects in the next three years.
The new solar project, located near Phalodi in Jodhpur District, was developed in three phases of 15, 15 and 20 MW. The project was completed in five months.
