Tata Motors partners Tata Power Renewable Energy to develop a 12 MWp solar project at its Pune factory


Tata Motors has partnered with Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd (TPREL) to develop a new 12 MWp on-site solar project at its Pune commercial vehicle manufacturing facility. The new plant will expand the Pune factory’s on-site solar power capacity to 20.73 MWp.

The two companies have signed a power purchase agreement for the plant. The solar project is to be commissioned within six months of signing the PPA.

“The installation is collectively expected to generate 17.5 million kWhs of electricity every year, which will meet nearly 17.2% of the [facility’s] annualized requirement, potentially mitigating over 12,400 tonnes/kWh of carbon emission each year,” stated Tata Motors.

Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd and Tata Motors have previously collaborated to develop a 16 MWp solar power project in Pantnagar, Uttarakhand, which will be Uttarakhand’s largest on-site PV facility.
