Tata Power commissions 70 kW solar rooftop at India International Centre, New Delhi


Tata Power Solar, India’s largest integrated solar company and Tata Power’s wholly-owned subsidiary, has commissioned 70 kW solar rooftop installation at the India International Centre (IIC). The project entails energy efficiency of 90,000 kWhr annually, along with reducing carbon emission by 63 tonnes. This installation will help India International centre to save Rs10 lakh on their electricity bill annually.

The uniqueness of this installation was that the engineering team had to cast the RCC beams to fit the ballast structure to the curved roof. The plan was executed ensuring that the structure is not hampered from any end. The roof mounting in the project was planned in an unconventional way as IIC has parabolic rooftops.

Tata Power Solar also has experience in executing large projects like the 100 MW project in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh on 500 acres of land and 30MWp Solar Power Plant in Lapanga, Odisha. It is one of the largest solar power projects in India, which is built on an Ash Dyke area that has 60% (19 MWp) in Ash Dyke area and 40% (11 MWp) in normal land. Apart from this, Tata Power Solar successfully executed 400 MW installations in Pavagada Solar Park, Karnataka. It has also won an auction conducted by Gujarat for 1000 MW of projects to be built at Dholera solar park.
