Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday gave its clearance for the establishment of four pumped storage hydroelectricity projects having an aggregate capacity of 3,700 MW by the Adani Group with a total investment of ₹15,376 crore spread over four tranches starting with an outlay of ₹1,349 crore in 2022–23.

Two projects, with 1,000 MW capacity each, will come up in Kadapa and at Karrivalasa village in Parvathipuram Manyam district. A 1,200 MW project will be set up at Kurukutti in Parvathipuram Manyam district and a 500 MW unit at Peddakotla in Sri Sathya Sai district.
