Adani Solar Energy Kutchh One Limited, a step-down subsidiary of Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL) has commissioned 150 MW solar power project.
In a regulatory filing, Adani Green said that despite all the challenges of global pandemic Covid-19, unprecedented rain and flood in Kutchh, Gujarat, the company’s team of experts made it possible to commission the project three months prior to its scheduled commissioning date.
