Mahindra, Kiran Get $57 Million Loan for Solar Project

July 6 (Bloomberg) -- Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. and Kiran Energy Solar Power Pvt. will get a $57 million loan from the U.S. Export-Import Bank for a solar power plant in India’s Rajasthan state.

The board of the Washington-based lender has approved the loan for the 50-megawatt solar project under development by Kiran and Mahindra Solar One, said Ardeshir Contractor, managing director and chief executive officer of Kiran. Mahindra Solar One is a venture between Kiran and India’s biggest maker of sports-utility vehicles.

The 14-year loan will have a fixed rate based on the prevailing U.S. Treasury bond rate, Contractor said in an e-mail late yesterday.

Kiran, whose investors include Bessemer Venture Partners, an early funder of Skype Technologies SA, has completed a 20-megawatt solar photovoltaic plant in Gujarat state. Mahindra Solar One and Kiran also built a five-megawatt project in Rajasthan state.
