Project Description
The proposed Project involves a multi-level engagement and partnership with Acme Solar Energy Private Limited (“ACME Solar”), a holding Company founded by ACME Tele Power to develop, construct and operate solar generation assets in India.

IFC is considering providing an overall envelope for debt funding in the amount of US$50 million, to be used over the next few years for various projects that ACME Solar is developing. The first tranche of this financing is expected to be provided to ACME Solar Energy (Madhya Pradesh) Private Limited (“ASEMPPL”), a subsidiary of ACME Solar established to develop a 25 MW grid connected solar photovoltaic power plant in the State of Madhya Pradesh (MP), India (the “Project”). ASEMPPL has entered into a 25-year power purchase agreement (“PPA”) with MP Power Management Company and is estimated to supply 50 GWh per year. The deadline for commissioning is November 2013.Other projects that ACME Solar is developing, which IFC may consider for financing under the facility include solar projects in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.
