Tata Power & Tata Motors to commission India’s largest solar carport in Pune

·1-min read

In line with Tata Group’s philosophy to promote green manufacturing, Tata Motors and Tata Power today jointly inaugurated India’s largest grid-synchronised, behind-the-metre solar carport at Tata Motors’ car plant in Chikhali (Pune).   

The 6.2 megawatts peak (MWp) solar carport deployed by Tata Power will generate 86.4 lakh kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity per year and is estimated to reduce 7,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually and 1.6 lakh tonnes over its lifecycle.  

Tata Motors had entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Tata Power on August 31, 2020. Despite the COVID-19 challenges, both companies successfully managed to develop this massive carport infrastructure in a period of 9.5 months.  

Tata Power comes with a successful background in executing multiple large solar solutions, including the world’s largest rooftop (16 MW) at a single location in Amritsar and a 2.67 MW at project Cochin International Airport. In addition,  the company has installed a rooftop plant at a CCI stadium in Mumbai with 820.8 kWp capacity and 1.4MW floating solar plant for Tata Chemicals at Nellore. Besides this, Tata Power is also carrying out an extensive pan-India residential rooftop programme.  

On Friday, the stock of Tata Power Company Limited closed at Rs 121.40, down by 2.02 per cent or 2.50 per share as against a 0.04 per cent gain in the benchmark index.
