The commissioning of the Tsitsikamma Community Wind farm has further augmented Tata Power’s renewables portfolio outside India and represents the company’s commitment and progress on its objectives of enhancing non-fossil based generation portfolio up to 30-40% of its total generating capacity and thereby creating value for its stakeholders.

We would once again like to take this opportunity to thank the Department of Energy, Republic of South Africa, Eskom, our partners Exxaro Resources, Vestas (our WTG supplier for the project), lenders to the project and all the community stakeholders for their contribution towards successful implementation of this project”.
