EDF-Backed Acme Starts 25-Megawatt Solar Plant in India

Acme Solar Energy Ltd., backed by Electricite de France SA’s renewable unit, started generating power from a 25-megawatt solar plant in central India.

The completion of the project in Khilchipur, Madhya Pradesh state, more than doubles Acme Solar’s photovoltaic holdings to 43 megawatts, the company said by e-mail.

The developer, a venture between EDF Energies Nouvelles, Luxembourg-based Eren Groupe SA and India’s Acme Group, plans to jointly develop 200 megawatts of solar capacity.
