Mumbai : Shapoorji Pallonji group company Sterling and Wilson Solar Ltd said on Friday it has been awarded Rs 747 crore contract to construct a 194 megawatt project in the United States.
Construction for the project will start in September and it will be commissioned by November 2021. The company's US arm Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions (SWSS) will manage the entire turn-key execution for the photovoltaic power project.
Once commercially operational, the plant will produce enough solar energy to power over 35,000 homes, saving nearly 275,000 metric tonnes of carbon emissions. The plant will be utilising bifacial technology to increase the production of power density.
"SWSS is focused on technological efficiency, performance, consumer centricity and execution which has helped us to win and build projects in this strategically located market," said Country Head Amit Jain.

and renewable energy goals.
