Tata Motors, Tata Power Renewable Energy sign deal to set up 12 MW solar project in Pune
The solar project is scheduled to be commissioned within six months following the signing of the PPA and will play a vital role in Tata Motors' long-term sustainability goals. With this addition, Tata Motors' total solar capacity in its Commercial Vehicle Business Unit (CVBU) in Pune will reach 20.73 MWp, including the existing 8.73 MWp capacity.
Tata Motors Limited (Tata Motors) and Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), a subsidiary of Tata Power, have entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to develop a new 12MWp on-site solar project.
The solar project will come up at Tata Motors' commercial vehicle manufacturing facility in Pune, Maharashtra. The solar installation is expected to collectively generate 17.5 million units of electricity annually, meeting approximately 17.2 per cent of the annualised energy requirement of the company, Tata Power said in a release on Tuesday.
With the boost in solar power capacity after the setting up of the new project it will potentially reduce carbon emissions by over 12,400 tonnes per year, the company said.
