Moser Baer Completes India’s Largest Solar Power Plant

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Moser Baer India Ltd., the country’s second-largest solar-cell maker, completed the biggest sun-powered plant in India.

The 4.65 billion rupee ($95 million) project in Gujarat state, which uses thin-film panels supplied by First Solar Inc., DuPont Co., and Moser Baer, has a capacity of 30 megawatts, the New Delhi-based company said today.

That makes it the largest solar plant commissioned to date in India, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance data. It will generate 52 million kilowatt-hours or enough electricity for 50,000 homes per day, according to the e-mailed statement.

Moser Baer’s solar division, which also works as a contractor for other companies, plans to build 300 megawatts of sun-powered projects in India, Germany, Italy and the U.K. over the next 12 months, the statement said.
