Amazon on Thursday announced its first wind-solar hybrid projects in India with Vibrant Energy, a subsidiary of Macquarie’s Green Investment Group.

“These two projects represent a total of 300 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy capacity and will be based in the states of Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka," the company said in a press release.

“Once operational these projects are expected to generate 1,163,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean energy, which is the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power 380,000 average-sized households in New Delhi each year," it said.

With three solar farms in Rajasthan, Amazon now has five utility-scale renewable energy projects in India, having over 720 MW of renewable energy capacity.

“As the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy globally, we continue to build momentum for our renewable energy investments in India. The two new projects represent Amazon’s first wind-solar hybrid projects globally," said Abhinav Singh, Director – Customer Fulfilment, Supply Chain and Global Specialty Fulfilment, Amazon India.
