NAGPUR(Metro Rail News): AmpIn Energy Transition (Formerly Amp Energy India), India’s leading renewable energy transition platform, announces the signing of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) of 25 years for a 6 MWp solar project with the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (MMRCL), Nagpur Metro Rail Project.

MMRCL

MMRCL is a Special Purpose Company jointly sponsored by the Government of Maharashtra (GoM) and the Government of India (GoI) in 2015 for implementing all metro projects in the State of Maharashtra outside the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

3rd Big Solar Project 

This marks AmpIn’s third solar project for a metro rail and its inaugural metro venture in Maharashtra, following two successfully operating solar projects for L&T Metro & Kochi Metro. The total capacity of this solar project is 6 MWp, which will be developed in two packages of 2.5 MWp and 3.5 MWp, respectively.

Power Distribution 

The total capacity would be distributed across 19 sites, including 13 Metro Station Rooftop GI Sheds, 2 Depot Building Rooftop RCC installations, 1 Admin Building RCC installation, and 3 Station Track Walls.

Power Generation 

The solar project is expected to replace ~36% of grid power with solar power for Nagpur Metro, resulting in a remarkable 41% savings per unit. In terms of environmental impact, the carbon offset achieved by this initiative would be approx. 7,000MT of CO2 annually for the life of the project.
