Tata Power to develop Tata Motors’ 7 MW solar project

Tata Motors Limited and Tata Power have entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for a 7 MW captive solar power project at its Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand. This solar plant will generate 215 million units of electricity, and will also help mitigate over 1.7 lakh tonnes of CO2, equivalent to planting 2.72 lakh teak trees over a lifetime.

Tata Power is working closely with Tata Motors on installing solar rooftop projects at some of their plants in India. To date, it has cumulatively installed 45 MW of solar rooftops across Tata Motors’ passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle plants in Pune, Pantnagar, Jamshedpur, and Dharwar.

Tata Motors, as a signatory to the RE100, is committed to using 100% renewable energy in its operations. In FY2021-22, across all its plants in India, the company generated 92.39 million kWh of renewable electricity for its manufacturing operations, which is 19.4% of its total power consumption.
