In April 2013, Mahindra EPC had its 20 MW solar power project at Bikaner enlisted in the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy's - MNRE (India) merit list for early commissioning for Phase I, Batch II of the National Solar Mission.
On 2 February 2015, the company was renamed Mahindra Susten. Susten is derived from the words - Sustainability and Enabler.
The company commenced its services in the year 2011 by making a beginning in the renewable energy space with the turnkey execution of Utility scale, commercial & industrial rooftop Solar PV projects.
In 2011, the company received the highest CRISIL- MNRE rating of SP1A for off-grid solar PV system. The company has further diversified its business into the telecom tower solarization segment, to provide solar power to towers, which are presently run on diesel.
As of November 2013, the company has commissioned 80 MW of installations.
Mahindra EPC in November 2013, finished installation of a 3.18 MWp solar PV power plant for an Auto Consortium in the state of Tamil Nadu. With an estimated total project capacity of 50 MWp, this group of India's seven leading auto component manufacturers have pledged an investment of over INR 3.25 billion for captive consumption of clean energy.
Comprising two separate projects of 10 MW and 20 MW, this installation under the second batch of Phase I of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), was commissioned in February 2013. With an annual generation in excess of 50 million units of energy this installation is expected to generate a carbon offset of nearly 40,000 MT CO2 annually.
In January 2013, Mahindra EPC commissioned their 20 MW plant near Bikaner which was then the first installation to have been completed under the Indian government’s JNNSM Phase 1 Batch 2 (JNNSM) initiative. The project utilizes a total of 270,000 thin-film PV modules supplied by First Solar.Spread across an area of 180 acres, the 20MWp solar PV plant is equipped to supply more than 38 million units of energy per year and is expected to displace nearly 30,000 MT of CO2 annually.
Near Jodhpur, this 5 MW installation holds the distinction of generating a high output per MW with its single axis tracker technology that maximises energy from the sun. Under the Indian government’s Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase 1 Batch 1 initiative, the plant was the first to get connected to the state’s electrical grid, having been commissioned in January 2012, under 100 days.
The plant at Lucknow was the first megawatt-scale installation in Uttar Pradesh (northern India), and was connected to the grid in January 2012, with a construction period of 71 days.
The plant at Hyderabad, was commissioned in just 3 months after its erection. It was commissioned on September 30, 2013. This plant is erected at an expanse of 13 acres land with Heritage foods being client.
This 6.91 MW plant which started on 15 September near Bap, Rajasthan was commissioned within 5 months.
