Adani Solar and Smart Power India (SPI), a subsidiary of Rockefeller Foundation, have signed a non-financial and non-commercial memorandum of understanding for equitable access to last-mile electricity and to encourage energy transition in rural India.
The MoU aims to promote the usage of solar rooftop panels and achieve 5 MW of solar deployment through Adani Solar’s channel partners in rural and peri-urban areas of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha. The initial phase would start with around five channel partners in UP followed by deployment in other states.
Mukesh Khandelwal, director C&I – Smart Power India said, “The objective of this MoU is to support inclusive economic growth and build resilient communities. SPI is delighted to work closely with Adani Solar to develop the ecosystem to scale and replicate sustainable businesses that provide renewable energy for productive use and expand the economic activity to underserved, rural areas in India”
