SolarArise's current portfolio of 384 MW (DC) comprises of six operational plants, across four states in India with a total capacity of 234 MW. Capacity for an additional 150 MW is already funded. All plants benefit from long-term power purchase agreements with either central government or state counterparties.

Throughout this time we worked diligently ensuring the health and well-being of our employees. Renewable energy is needed now more than ever, as communities across India are realising the importance of a clean climate."
