Amazon plans 3 solar farms and 23 solar rooftop projects in India

Ecommerce major, Amazon today announced its first utility-scale renewable energy projects in India – three solar farms located in the state of Rajasthan. These include a 210 MW project to be developed by ReNew Power, a 100MW project to be developed by local developer Amp Energy India, and a 110MW project to be developed by Brookfield Renewable. "Combined, these solar farms have the capacity to generate 1,076,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy per year, enough to power over 360,000 average-sized households in New Delhi annually," the company said in a press statement. Amazon’s solar projects in Rajasthan will help to increase the availability and affordability of renewable energy in India, by enabling new capacity beyond what is available on the grid today.
