“SECI and GRIDCO’s Power Pact: 600 MW of Wind Power on the Horizon”

Published by firstgreen on


Charles F. Kutscher’s words capture the essence of wind energy, a powerful form of renewable energy derived indirectly from the sun. A significant milestone in India’s wind energy journey has been the recent Power Sale Agreement (PSA) signed between the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and GRIDCO, the Odisha state utility.

SECI: Driving Wind Energy in India

As the nodal agency for implementing national solar missions, SECI has always been instrumental in promoting renewable energy in India. Their latest move, signing a PSA for 600 MW of wind power with GRIDCO, underlines their commitment to boosting India’s wind energy sector.

GRIDCO: Powering Odisha with Wind Energy

As Odisha’s state utility, GRIDCO plays a vital role in the state’s power distribution. By entering into a PSA with SECI, they are gearing up to introduce a significant proportion of wind energy into Odisha’s power mix.

A Leap in Wind Power

The agreement signed between SECI and GRIDCO represents a leap forward in India’s wind energy journey. Under tranche-XIII of ISTS-connected wind power, SECI will supply 600 MW of wind power, signaling a significant boost in the use of this renewable energy source.

Implications for Renewable Energy in India

The PSA between SECI and GRIDCO holds significant implications for renewable energy in India. It emphasizes the growing importance of wind power in India’s energy landscape, encouraging other states to explore similar opportunities in wind energy generation.

The Role of Firstgreen Consulting

As India accelerates its renewable energy journey, expert guidance is critical. Firstgreen Consulting, with its vast experience in renewable energy projects, can provide crucial insights and strategies to ensure the effective implementation of such large-scale energy initiatives.


In conclusion, the PSA signed between SECI and GRIDCO for 600 MW of wind power represents a significant step forward in India’s renewable energy journey. It is a milestone that, with the support of expert consultancies like Firstgreen Consulting, reinforces India’s commitment to harnessing wind energy, echoing Charles F. Kutscher’s sentiment about the potential of this indirect form of solar energy.
