Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), a subsidiary of Tata Power, announced the successful completion of a 110-MW solar project in Bikaner, Rajasthan. The project, which took only 7 months to finish, will supply electricity to the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). This remarkable feat was achieved despite the project facing numerous challenges, including tough land topography, extreme weather conditions, temperature extremes, sandstorms, and geopolitical obstacles.
The solar power project utilizes 259,272 mono bifacial PERC half-cell modules and is expected to generate approximately 211 million units (MUs) of electricity each year. Furthermore, the project will significantly contribute to reducing carbon emissions, eliminating an estimated 258,257 metric tonnes (MT) of carbon footprint.
TPREL’s CEO, Ashish Khanna, expressed his satisfaction with the completion of the project and emphasized its importance in meeting Kerala’s green energy needs. The successful commissioning of this sizable project underscores Tata Power Renewable’s dedication to supporting the country’s transition to green energy.
With the addition of this installation, TPREL’s total renewable energy capacity now stands at an impressive 6,788 MW. This includes 4,047 MW of solar energy capacity, comprising 3,106 MW of solar power and 941 MW of wind power. Additionally, there are another 2,741 MW of renewable energy projects currently in various stages of implementation.
By achieving this milestone, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited continues to solidify its position as a leading player in India’s renewable energy sector, thanks to its skilled team, cutting-edge technology, and experienced leadership.
