Tata Power will develop a 7 MW rooftop solar project for self-consumption by Tata Motors’ manufacturing facility at Pantnagar in Uttarakhand. The two companies recently entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) for this captive solar power project.
“Collectively, this installation is expected to generate 215 million units of electricity, potentially mitigating over 1.7 lakh tonnes of carbon emissions. This is equivalent to planting over 2.72 lakh teak trees over a lifetime,” stated Tata Power.
Tata Power is working closely with Tata Motors on installing solar rooftop projects at some of their plants in India. To date, it has cumulatively installed 45 MW of solar rooftops across Tata Motors’ passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle plants in Pune, Pantnagar, Jamshedpur, and Dharwar.
Tata Motors, as a signatory to the RE100, is committed to using 100% renewable energy in its operations. In FY2021-22, across all its plants in India, the company generated 92.39 million kWh of renewable electricity for its manufacturing operations, which is 19.4% of its total power consumption.
Tata Power’s rooftop solar portfolio includes one of the world’s largest rooftops (16 MW) at a single location at Radhasoami Satsang Beas, Amritsar; 2.67 MW carport at Cochin International Airport; 820.8 kWp solar-powered cricket stadium in Mumbai; and 120 kW solar vertical farm at Dell Technologies in Bengaluru.
