Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), a subsidiary of Tata Power, has recently executed two Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd. (MSEDCL). These agreements are for the development of two solar power projects of 200 MW and 150 MW, respectively.
Situated in Maharashtra, the 200 MW and 150 MW solar projects are important for achieving the state’s renewable energy objectives. They represent crucial milestones in India’s efforts to adopt renewable energy and combat the effects of climate change. These solar initiatives are slated to be operational by mid-2025, and once commissioned, they will produce a significant amount of clean energy each year, resulting in a substantial reduction of approximately 428,800 tons and 311,200 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
As per the agreement, TPREL is committed to providing clean and sustainable electricity to MSEDCL, making a significant contribution to the state’s renewable energy targets. Out of the 930 MW capacity tied up with MSEDCL, TPREL currently supplies 334 MW, and the remaining 596 MW is scheduled to be commissioned within the next 12-18 months.
As of now, TPREL’s total renewables capacity amounts to 7,783 MW, with an installed capacity of 4,118 MW (comprising 3,136 MW from solar and 982 MW from wind). Additionally, there are 3,665 MW under various stages of implementation, including the present 350 MW project.
