JSW Energy has announced that its arm JSW Renew Energy has inked a power purchase agreement for supply of 540 MW from a total blended wind capacity of 810 MW, which was bagged through a competitive bidding process.

JSW Renew Energy Ltd — a wholly-owned subsidiary of JSW Future Energy Ltd — has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd (SECI) for the contracted capacity of 540 MW out of the total awarded capacity of 810 MW, as per a BSE filing said.
