Astonfield Renewable Resources and solar integrator Belectric have entered into an agreement for the execution of Astonfield's 5 MW solar power plant in Osiyan, Rajasthan, India.
The Osiyan project is one of several Astonfield plants expected to be approved under the Migration Phase of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. It will be Astonfield's first solar power plant to be commissioned and is expected to come online during fiscal year 2010-11.
A total of 185 acres has been secured under a long-term lease to allow for an additional 20 MW build-out in the future. Belectric has completed site designs and engineering on the plant. Construction will begin immediately following Migration approval.
