The Adani Green Energy (MP) Limited 50 MW wind power project has “a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) at Rs 2.65/kWh for a period of 25 years,” the regulatory filing said.

The total revenue from operations, however, went up by 11 percent year-on-year to Rs 504 crore. “The group has refinanced its earlier borrowings through the issuance of secured senior notes (US$ denominated bonds) and rupee term loans from a bank and financial institutions.
