The plant in Andhra Pradesh was developed by SB Energy, a joint venture between SoftBank, Foxconn and Bharti Enterprises. It uses 72-cell polycrystalline solar panels from Chinese supplier Trina Solar in the largest single order that the company has ever closed in India.

The plant was designed and developed by SB Energy using the latest technology of module cleaning, site maintenance and security, and has the capacity to produce electricity for over 700,000 Indian households.

“We are proud to be the trusted partner of SB Energy for its first large-scale solar project in Andhra Pradesh,” said Mr Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. “This is part of our continued effort to contribute to India’s national target of 100GW of solar generation capacity by 2022.”

The company was founded in 1997 as a system installation company in China and has shipped panels producing 23GW of power to date across Europe, the US and Asia.
