According to reports, Tata Power Company (TPC), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), is developing one of its largest photovoltaic based solar power plants with an installed capacity of 28.8 MW in the Satara district in Maharashtra.
The plant will be spread over 130 acres of land. The latest state of the art technology in photovoltaic based solar generation will be utilized for the plant, a spokesperson said.
Tata Power-Distribution, the distribution arm of Tata Power, has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for 25 years in order to purchase power from this solar plant, thereby meeting its solar renewable purchase obligations.
The power generated will be routed through Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Limited (MSETCL)’s network. Speaking on the initiative, TPC managing director Anil Sardana said, “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. TPC strives to reduce its carbon footprint.”
