The company said that, the project is expected to be commissioned within six months from the date of execution of the PPA.

As per the agreement signed, energy will be supplied to Tata Steel under a PPA valid for a period of 25 years from the scheduled commercial date of operation.

Commenting on the project win, Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power, said, “we are glad to collaborate with Tata Steel to reduce their carbon footprint and reaffirm the Tata Group’s commitment for sustainability. Presently the association is limited to Tata Steel at Jamshedpur and we look forward to working closely with them for covering all their other plants across India.”

This solar plant likely to produce an average of 32 MUs of energy per year and will annually offset approximately average 25.8 million Kg of CO2.
