Amplus has commissioned its 73.4 megawatt power (MWp) project, an intra-state open access solar power plant, in Jhansi district of Uttar Pradesh.

The plant, Project Lakshmi, marks Amplus’s third solar open-access plant in Uttar Pradesh, following the success of Project Mirza and Project Deoria, the company, a member of clean energy solutions provider Gentari Sdn Bhd, said.

Interconnected at the 132 KV Gursarai sub-station, Project Lakshmi will deliver substantial energy cost savings to Amplus’ clientele across the state. Additionally, the plant is projected to reduce CO2 emissions by 11,6716.1 tonnes annually.
