Tata Power to develop 28.8 MW solar project in Maharashtra, India


Tata Power, India's largest integrated power utility, is developing one of its largest photovoltaic power plants with an installed capacity of 28.8 MW in the state of Maharashtra’s Satara district.

The plant, developed by the utility’s Tata Power Renewable Energy division, will cover more than 130 acres of land in Maharashtra's Satara district.

Tata Power Distribution, the group's distribution arm, has signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for the plant’s generated power, thereby meeting its solar renewable purchase obligations. Tata Power said it intends to commission the entire project capacity by December.

"Tata Power is committed to generating 20-25 % of its total generation capacity from clean energy sources and is proud to be developing one of the largest solar projects in the country," said Tata Power managing director Anil Sardana. "Tata Power strives to reduce its carbon footprint."

The group currently has more than 30 MW in solar projects, making it one of the largest solar power generators in India. The company has also commissioned a 3 MW photovoltaic plant in Mulshi, Maharashtra, as well as a 25 MW project in Mithapur, in the neighboring state of Gujarat.

The Mithapur project, one of the largest of its kind in the country, has surpassed 43 GWh since going online in January 2012. Tata Power Renewable Energy signed a PPA for the project, which covers more than 100 acres of land, with local state utility Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited.

In addition, Tata Power's Tata Power Delhi Distribution subsidiary has commissioned a 1 MW grid-connected roof top solar plant in Delhi.

Tata Power has proposed adding 50 MW of solar power capacity every year.
