The Raghanesda project was secured by SJVN Green Energy Limited, the renewable energy wing of SJVN at a tariff of Rs. 2.64 per unit through tariff based competitive bidding conducted by GUVNL. Its construction and development cost was estimated at ₹642 crores. 

Smt. Geeta Kapur, Chairperson & Managing Director of SJVN, stated the company is committed to boost India’s green energy landscape and become a leading energy sector player. SJVN aims to reach an installed capacity of 25,000 MW by 2030 and 50,000 MW by 2040.

SJVN is a Mini Ratna, result of a collaboration between the Government of India and the Government of Himachal Pradesh. With the government holding a majority stake, it was established in 1988. Since then, SJVN has diversified across various energy forms, including hydro, thermal, wind, solar, power trading, and transmission.
