Solar, wind growth

"Since the Group follows accelerated depreciation, it reported a net loss. Management uses Cash Profit as an important metric of intrinsic performance," an AGEL statement said.

The interest and other borrowing cost during the quarter went up by ₹57 crore to ₹250 crore “primarily on account of charging of interest to profit and loss account as compared to capitalisation of interest in previous quarters being in project phases and additional debt on account of ramp up of capacity.”

Jayant Parimal, CEO, Adani Green Energy Ltd said, “The last quarter has seen significant growth for the business with solar and wind. AGEL is among the largest renewable energy generation companies in India, and with our focus on new technology evaluation, we plan to commission a total of around 800 MW of new capacity of wind and solar projects in FY2020. As a corporate, we aspire to be among the leading global players in renewables.”

Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group, said, "Adani Green Energy Limited continues to invest in developing capabilities to provide reliable, sustainable, round the clock green power for India’s growing power needs."
