A large-scale solar-wind hybrid project believed to be the first in India is now up and running.

Hero Future Energies added a 28.8MW solar farm to an existing 50MW wind project in the state of Karnataka.

Electricity generated from the renewable plant is sold to several private companies.

A hybrid plant is said to have several advantages compared to standalone solar or wind projects, including reduced transmission costs and better forecasting.
