According to a BHEL release, ISRO recently deployed solar panels and batteries on the GSAT-10 satellite.

The four solar panels, each of 5.36 square metres area supplied by BHEL for the GSAT-10, comprise multi-junction solar cells in series and parallel combinations, with a total power generating capacity of 4,000 watts.

BHEL has also supplied two sets of Li-ion batteries, each consisting of 40 Li-ion cells with a power storage capacity of 160 Ampere-Hours for GSAT-10.
