Adani has commissioned 50 MW of solar projects in Mahoba in Uttar Pradesh. The projects were developed under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), according to Mercom Capital Group.

The project was developed with an investment of Rs.3.15 billion (~$48.8 million), the Adani Group stated in a release. The entire capacity comprises five projects of 10 MW each. The project is the first in Uttar Pradesh to be equipped with string inverter technology, which allows for miniature level control of solar power generation.

The power generated will be evacuated to Uttar Pradesh Transmission Corporation Limited (UPTCL).
