Princeton Digital Group (PDG), a Singapore-headquartered data center provider in Asia, today announced that it had signed a renewable power consumption agreement (PCA) with an arm of Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd (TPREL), one of India’s largest renewable energy companies.
Under the agreement, PDG’s MU1 data center in Airoli, Mumbai, will consume power generated by a solar project in the Nanded district, Maharashtra.
The captive project will be developed with investment from PDG and TPREL arm and will provide PDG’s MU1 its first phase of renewable energy.
The project will commence generation in steps starting June 1.
“The long-term [25-year] agreement will enable PDG to take a meaningful step towards digital decarbonization by establishing a roadmap for its MU1 data center to be powered with up to 50% renewable energy,” stated PDG.
PDG launched its MU1 data center in December last year. The data center provides 48 MW of critical IT capacity across two buildings.
As of date, TPREL’s total renewable utility capacity is 6,788 MW, including 2,871 MW projects under various stages of implementation and an operational capacity of 3,917 MW (2,989 MW solar and 928 MW wind).
