Spanish solar energy company T-Solar expands operations in India

- New 12.3 MWp photo-voltaic solar energy plant in Gujarat 
- Total investment of €34m in two solar projects in India 

Madrid - 06 February 2013 (PRNewswire) - The T-Solar Group has just connected up its second PV power plant in India. The new plant in Nayaka (Gujarat), with an installed capacity of 12.3 MWp, will generate 19.4 GWh a year. The power plant consists of 96,885 panels installed over a 36.4 hectare site.

T-Solar also has another 5 MWp photo-voltaic power plant in Osiyan (Rajasthan) that has been operational since October 2011, providing the electricity grid with 8.5 GWh a year. It was the first photo-electric power plant to be connected to the Indian grid by a Spanish company and one of the first to come on line under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). 

The total investment in these two photo-voltaic projects amounts to €34m and they generate enough energy to supply over 49,000 people. 

T-Solar is a major independent power producer of photo-voltaic solar electricity. The Isolux Infrastructure subsidiary has 284.5 MWp under operation and development in Spain, Italy, India, Peru, United States and Puerto Rico. Its operational photo-voltaic solar power plants generate over 320 GWh a year, the equivalent to the average annual electricity consumption of a town of 113,004 inhabitants. The T-Solar group earned €114m in revenues in 2012 and has invested over €1.5bn to date.
