Azure Power Provides an Update on 4 GW Tender

Azure Power | December 29, 2020

Purplish blue Power keeps on pursuing marking PPAs for the 4 GW producing connected delicate for which a Letter of Award ("LOA") has just been gotten. The Solar Energy Corporation of India ("SECI") has educated us that so far there has not been satisfactory reaction from the state power conveyance organizations ("DISCOMs") for SECI to have the option to sign the PSAs at this stage despite the fact that we have a LOA. SECI has referenced that they will be not able to sign PPAs until PSAs have been marked, and they have resolved to advise Azure Power regarding improvements in their endeavors with the DISCOMS. Capital costs, loan fees and unfamiliar trade rates have improved since Azure Power won the 4 GW sell off a year back which have brought about lower duties in other ongoing SECI barters. We expect these investment funds probably will be given to state power dispersion organizations (DISCOMS). We expect a tax markdown from the cost found in the sale, which will encourage marking of PSAs. We will proceed with our conversations with SECI towards marking PPAs in regard of the 4GW delicate and anticipate that the PPAs should be endorsed in tranches throughout some undefined time frame. We will proceed with our approach to just interpretation of agreements that make investor esteem and acquire restores that are over our expense of capital.

White Pine Renewables Completes Floating Solar Project in the U.S.

White Pine Renewables | March 04, 2021

White Pine Renewables is pleased to announce the culmination of the Healdsburg Floating Solar Project. The task will convey clean energy to the City of Healdsburg, Calif., under a 25-year power buy arrangement. At 4.78 MW(dc) and sited on lakes at the City's wastewater treatment plant, the venture is the biggest floating solar task finished in the United States to date. The power created by the task will cover around 8% of the City's absolute energy interest and is a significant piece of the City's arrangement to arrive at 60% environmentally friendly power before 2030. Moreover, siting the solar boards on the lakes tries not to utilize land for the task and will diminish dissipation and green growth development, profiting the encompassing grape plantations that depend on the treated water for water system. The Healdsburg Floating Solar Project was developed and is operated by White Pine Renewables. "This project exemplifies what differentiates White Pine," said White Pine CEO Evan Riley. "We combined innovative technology and an efficient capital structure to provide long-term savings to the City of Healdsburg." Noria Energy co-built up the venture with White Pine and Collins Electrical Company, Inc., a California-based development worker for hire, if establishment administrations. The Healdsburg project was finished in under a half year from acquirement to charging. Terry Crowley, Utility Director for the City of Healdsburg, described the project as "a cornerstone of the City's long-term plan to save money on energy costs and provide City electric customers with 60% renewable energy." Crowley added that he "greatly appreciated the collaborative partnership between White Pine, Noria, and Collins Electrical to deliver the project safely, efficiently and in an extremely short period of time." Noria's CEO Jon Wank noted that the Noria-White Pine partnership "leveraged Noria's experience in floating solar technology and White Pine's development experience to create a project that delivers low-cost renewable energy while creating environmental benefits." While still a little bit of the by and large solar market, floating PV is turning out to be progressively mainstream as a result of its double land use reason and for the most part higher energy creation because of the cooling impacts of water and wind.
