Share

The solar power plant which will be located near Pune in Mulshi, in the west of India, will produce energy that will then be purchased by Tata Power and distributed in Mumbai in order to meet a Renewable Energy Purchase Obligation (RPO) as defined by MERC (Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission). Tata BP Solar, the TATA and BP Solar UK joint-venture will supply the technology.

Speaking on the occasion, Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power, said, "The commissioning of the grid connected 3 MW Solar power plant in Mulshi marks a significant milestone for Tata Power and we are delighted with this achievement. This addition reinforces the company’s sustainability agenda and the commitment of setting up generation capabilities through renewable sources. MERC is one of the regulators to have adopted RPO and our customers in Mumbai would be getting green power through solar energy."

Tata Power is also working on a 25MW solar power project in Mithapur in Gujarat under a Power Purchase Agreement with Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam. This operation is set to commence at the end of this year.

Tata Power has set its goal towards the production of 25,000 megawatts of energy by the year 2017, of which 20 to 25 percent is to come from a mix of renewable energies.
