Mahindra Susten on Monday said it will foray into the hybrid renewable energy segment by setting up a Rs 1,200-crore 150-megawatt solar wind energy project in Maharashtra.
The project includes installation of a 101 megawatt (MW) wind and 52 MW solar capacity, Mahindra Group said in a statement. The facility is expected to generate 460 million kilowatt-hour (kWh) of clean energy, offsetting 420,000 tonne of Co2 emissions.

The project also marks Mahindra Susten's foray into the 'hybrid RE' segment and will be one of the largest co-located solar + wind hybrid projects in Maharashtra to deliver clean energy to commercial and Industrial (C&I) customers, the statement said.
The company aims to commission the project within the next two years. It will have more than 80 per cent locally manufactured components, the company said.
