Suzlon Energy witnessed another notable milestone today as its stock price surpassed the 50 mark during intraday trading, reaching 50.60 per share by gaining 4.9%. This follows a 5% upper circuit in the previous session, triggered by the announcement made by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman during the presentation of the interim budget for the fiscal year 2024-2025 in Parliament on February 1. 

The finance minister proposed assistance for the installation of rooftop solar systems in 1 crore houses under the “Pradhanmantri Suryodaya Yojana."

Additionally, the finance minister announced viability gap funding for offshore wind energy, specifically up to 1 GW capacity. This move is particularly positive for industry players like Suzlon Energy operating in the wind energy ecosystem, spanning turbine manufacturing and Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) services.

Suzlon Energy's positive trajectory is further fueled by the company's successful order wins in the wind energy sector and its dedicated efforts to achieve debt-free status. These factors have instilled confidence among investors, contributing to a 440% surge in the company's share value over the past year.

Notably, the company is present in all windy states in India, and its wind order book is on an upward trajectory. It grew from 652 MW in Q4 FY23 to 3,157 MW as of January, providing good visibility of revenue.

With a stronger balance sheet and robust performance, the company can meaningfully participate in the ongoing energy transition. In Q3 FY24, the company reported a 160% jump in its consolidated net profit to 203.04 crore. In the same period last year, the company recorded a net profit of 78.28 crore.

During the quarter, Suzlon Energy successfully lowered its finance cost to 14.28 crore from 86.28 crore in the corresponding period of the previous year. In Q2 FY24, the finance cost stood at 43.70 crore.
