Andhra Pradesh Green Corridor gears up

The energy utilities in Andhra Pradesh are gearing up to complete the works on first phase of evacuation of 3,150 MW under the green energy corridor by the end of this financial year. The State which had current installed capacity of 150 MW in solar energy was actively working to ensure that the capacity was scaled up to 5,000 MW. Mr. Vijayanand said Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu was firm that the power utilities availed technology-driven mechanisms to enable periodic review of the progress of implementation of the upcoming projects. According to APGenco Chairman and Managing Director K. Vijayanand, works were underway for setting up of three solar energy parks with an aggregate capacity of 3,500 MW. The State which had current installed capacity of 150 MW in solar energy was actively working to ensure that the capacity was scaled up to 5,000 MW in the next four years.

Plans capacity addition of 11,210 MW in 10 years. The State which had current installed capacity of 150 MW in solar energy was actively working to ensure that the capacity was scaled up to 5,000 MW.
