Giriraj Enterprises Solar Power Project, Rajasthan

Project Details

India’s Largest Solar PV Power Plant under REC Mechanism

The Giriraj Enterprises Solar Power plant, located on approximately 160 acres of land in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, demonstrates viability of REC mechanism for solar projects in India. The 36.3MWp power plant, powered by over 148,000 polycrystalline modules, generates electricity with zero emissions during operation, powers 60,000 average Indian homes, and displaces over 48,000 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per year. Construction of the plant created 400 jobs at peak, and was built by Sterling & Wilson. Power from the project is being supplied to local DISCOM at APPC while the 53,000 RECs generated per year are traded with obligated entities under RPO across India. Giriraj Enterprises, owned by the US$132Mn tobacco, power and real estate major – Malpani Group, holds 100% equity in the project.
