Greenko, one of India’s largest Renewable Energy IPPs, ventured into Solar Power Development in 2016 with acquisition of SunEdison India’s portfolio. Gensol’s flexibility to place key resources at Greenko’s offices for a long time and immediate deployment led to Gensol’s appointment for Due Diligence before acquisition and for detailed engineering & Project Management during construction on these projects.
