From pv magazine India

Waaree Energies Ltd, which has 12 GW of annual production capacity, has secured approximately $121.87 million in a second round of equity funding led by ValueQuest, a SEBI-registered portfolio management company focusing on equity markets. It had previously attracted funding from investors.

The company will use the new investment to set up 6 GW of wafer-to-module production capacity, which was acquired through the Indian government’s production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for solar manufacturing. This equity funding supplements other PLI incentives granted by the government.
