Tata Power to develop 41 MW solar projects for Tata Steel


Tata Power will develop a cumulative 41 MW of grid-connected solar plants for Tata Steel in Jharkhand and Odisha. The projects, at Jamshedpur (21.97 MWp) and Kalinganagar (19.22 MWp), will be a combination of the rooftop, floating, and ground-mounted solar panels

Tata Power and Tata Steel, both under the Tata Group, have signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for the electricity generated from the 41MW solar project.

At Jamshedpur, Tata Power will develop a rooftop PV plant with a 7.57 MWp capacity, floating 10.8 MWp, and ground-mounted 3.6 MWp. The ground-mounted PV will be installed at the Sonari Airport of Jamshedpur.

Kalinganagar will have 9.12 MWp of rooftop PV capacities and 10.10 MWp floating PV.

The 41.19 MWp solar capacity is estimated to generate 6,02,80,095 kWh of electricity in the first year and a total of 1,40,93,61,488 kWh over its lifetime of 25 years. The project will help save 45,210 tonnes of CO2 emission per year and 1,057,021 tonnes during its 25-year lifetime.
