0 20

Tata Power and Tata Motors have partnered to develop a 7 MWp solar rooftop project at Tata Motors’ Passenger Vehicle Plant in Chikhali, Pune, reaffirming the Tata Group’s commitment to sustainable manufacturing. This is the third phase of the two companies’ joint 17 MWp on-site solar project, of which 10 MWp has already been installed. The Tata Motors PV manufacturing unit, which was installed by Tata Power, will now be home to India’s largest on-site solar project.

For this solar project, Tata Motors and Tata Power recently signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The installation is expected to generate 23 million units of electricity and mitigate 5.23 lakh tonnes of carbon dioxide, making it a significant step toward building a resilient and sustainable future. Over the course of a lifetime, this will be the equivalent of planting 8.36 lakh trees.

“Tata Motors has been working towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions to achieve Net Zero Emission goal. With fresh agreement to install an additional Roof Top solar plant of 7 MWp in our Pune plant in association with Tata Power, we will move closer to our goal of 100% Renewable Energy. Post commissioning of this capacity, we will become the largest onsite solar installation in India,”

Mr. Rajesh Khatri, Vice President, Operations, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., said.

As a signatory to the RE100, Tata Motors is committed to using 100 percent renewable energy in its operations and has made significant progress toward that goal by gradually increasing the proportion of renewable energy used in its operations. In FY22, the company generated 92.39 million kWh of renewable electricity, accounting for nearly 19.4% of total power consumption. The company also intends to pursue renewable energy with greater rigor in order to meet its 2030 goal of procuring 100% renewable energy.

“India’s largest on-site solar project at Tata Motors’ Pune plant is a testament to our shared goal of being green in our businesses. The project reinforces Tata Power’s position as one of India’s top renewable energy players, offering considerable value to its partners through its project execution capabilities and technical expertise”

Mr. Gurinder Singh Sandhu, Chief, New Business Services, Tata Power said.

Tata Power has a track record of delivering large solar rooftop projects, including one of the world’s largest rooftop (16MW) at a single location at Radhasoami Satsang Beas (RSSB), Amritsar; 2.67MW at Cochin International Airport; one of the world’s largest solar-powered cricket stadiums-Cricket Club of India (CCI) with 820.8 kWp capacity; and 1.4MW floating solar farm at Dell Technologies in Bangalore. In addition, Tata Power is implementing a pan-India residential rooftop program to raise awareness of the benefits of solar energy savings.
