Pune, India, -based solar EPC provider Enrich Energy (EEPL) is commissioning a 5 megawatt solar photovoltaic power project as part of Phase-II, batch-1 of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).
According to a statement, the project sited at Karajgi in Solapur district is the first in Maharashtra that Solar Energy Commission of India (SECI) and Maharashtra Energy Development Agency (MEDA) are commissioning in the state under JNNSM Phase-II Batch-I policy.
EEPL handled engineering, procurement and construction of the project for Sunil Hi Tech.
The project was synchronized with the grid on June 26 at 132/33 KV Karajgi substation.
