CleanMax Enviro Energy Solutions, a Commercial & Industrial (C&I) renewable energy company, announced it has partnered with Meta to invest in 33.8 Megawatt of renewable energy projects in India. 

Under the deal, CleanMax will own and operate the projects, while Meta will purchase 100 per cent of the environmental attributes from the projects for years to come.

“The 33.8 MW of renewable energy project capacity is made up of 21.6 MW of wind and 12.2 MW of solar, which is in addition to 32 MW of wind energy jointly announced last year. This brings CleanMax and Meta’s total investment to 65 MW of new renewable energy that will be added to India’s electrical grid,” the companies said in a statement. 

The projects are part of a larger wind-solar hybrid farm being developed by CleanMax. Once commissioned, the overall capacity of the CleanMax wind solar hybrid farm will stand at 364 MW; comprising 154 MW wind and 210 MWp solar.

CleanMax is a renewable energy company in the C&I sector with 1 GW of operating renewable assets and it works with 350 corporates for their renewable energy requirements. It operates 600 MW of large-scale solar and wind farms for supplying clean energy to its corporate customers.

Meanwhile, state-run NTPC has said its 240 MW Devikot solar project at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan has begun commercial operations. 

“Consequent upon successful commissioning, entire capacities of 150 MW & 90 MW Devikot Solar PV Projects at Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, are declared on commercial operation with effect from 00:00 Hours of December 13, 2022,” a BSE filing stated. With this, standalone installed and commercial capacity of the NTPC has become 58,041.27 MW, while group installed and commercial capacity of NTPC has become 70,656.27 MW, the filing stated.
