Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited Inks PPA with Tata Motors for 9 MWp Pantnagar Solar Plant in Uttarakhand


Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL) has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Tata Motors for a 9MWp on-campus solar facility with Tata Motors’ Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand. This solar installation will be the largest on-campus solar facility within the state.


This solar project aligns effectively with Tata Motors’ sustainability objectives, aiming for a considerable reduction of approximately 25 tonnes of CO2/kWp in Uttarakhand. The project is set to be operational within half a year from the execution date of the PPA and will utilize ground-mounted units for its installation.

Previously, TPREL and Tata Motors have successfully established a 7 MWp solar venture at the Pantnagar manufacturing site. As a result of these endeavors, the total solar capacity of Tata Motors’ Pantnagar plant now stands at 16 MWp. The combined solar facilities are projected to generate 224 lakhs units annually, fulfilling nearly 60% of their yearly energy requirement.


Mr. Ashish Khanna, CEO, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited, said, “Tata Power Renewables with this partnership with Tata Motors is supporting India’s green energy future. The 9MWp solar power installation resonates our commitment to fostering the widespread adoption of eco-friendly clean energy solutions across industries”.
