Mahindra Susten Private Limited, a prominent Independent Power Producer (IPP) and subsidiary of the Mahindra Group, has clinched the title of the lowest bidder for a substantial 300 MW solar project in the NTPC 1500 MW Solar Tender bid. The achievement follows a rigorous competitive bidding process culminating in an e-reverse auction conducted by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) on March 18.

In this significant development, Mahindra Susten secured a project capacity of 300 MW at a quoted tariff of 2.59, with NTPC Limited as the off-taker.
