The shares of India’s largest private thermal power producer firm gained 2 percent to ₹ 527 per share after the company signed an investment agreement with Reliance Industries for a 500 MW power purchase agreement. 

At 12:25 p.m., Adani Power Ltd. shares were trading at ₹524.95 per share, up ₹8.40 or 1.63 percent from the previous close price on the National Stock Exchange. The company has a market capitalization of ₹ 2,01,853 crore. 

Mahan Energen Limited (“MEL”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Adani Power Limited, has signed a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 500 MW with Reliance Industries Limited under the Captive User policy outlined in the Electricity Rules of 2005. 

Within MEL’s Mahan thermal power plant, one unit with a capacity of 600 MW, from its total capacity of 2800 MW (including operational and upcoming capacities), will be designated as the Captive Unit for this agreement. 

Under this policy, Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) must hold a 26 percent ownership stake in the Captive Unit, corresponding to the power plant’s total capacity. To meet this requirement, RIL will invest in 5,00,00,000 equity shares of MEL, totaling ₹ 50 crore for the proportional ownership stake. 

This development marks an exclusive agreement between two corporate entities, enabling Reliance Industries to purchase 500 MW of power on a long-term basis.

Yearly, the company’s revenue surged by 67 percent, climbing from ₹7,764 crore in Q3FY23 to ₹12,991 crore in Q3FY24. Concurrently, net profit skyrocketed by 30322 percent, soaring from ₹9 crore to ₹2,738 crore within the same timeframe.
