Tata Motors has collaborated with Tata Power to develop a 4 MWp on-site solar project at its commercial vehicle manufacturing facility in Pune, Maharashtra. The two companies recently signed a power purchase agreement for the power generated from the plant.
Tata Motors’ Pune plant has 15 MWp of solar capacity already deployed at its passenger and commercial manufacturing facility, generating 21 million kWh of renewable electricity. Over the next few years, the company plans to expand the solar capacity of its Pune plant to meet the growing demand for renewable energy.
The 4 MWp installation is expected to generate 5.8 million units (kWh) of electricity, potentially mitigating over 10 lakh tons of carbon emissions. This is equivalent to planting more than 1.6 million teak trees over a lifetime, the group said.
