Utility giant Tata Power has recently won a contract worth Rs 400 crore from the Kerala State Electricity Board Ltd (KSEB) to develop an 84 MW solar rooftop project for domestic consumers across all districts in the state of Kerala.

Under this contract, the Mumbai-based power utility will implement projects through KSEB of 64 MW for individual households with solar capacity ranging from 3kW - 10kW and 20 MW for residential and housing society projects with solar capacity ranging from 11kW - 100kW.

The company has won this capacity in a bid announced by KSEBL in February this year under the ‘Soura Subsidy Scheme in Domestic Sector’, Kerala, in line with the Phase II Subsidy Programme of the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE).

As per the terms of the agreement, the company has to commission the project within three months of the receipt of an order from individual residential customers.

Post completion of this 84 MW solar rooftop project, it is expected to generate 120 MUs of energy per year and will annually offset approximately 100 Million Kg of CO2.

Commenting on the project win, Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD of Tata Power, said “we are delighted to secure the 84 MW rooftop project from KSEBL and are proud to have this opportunity to support domestic consumers migrate to green energy. This project is testament of KSEBL’s trust in our commitment to drive India’s transition towards clean power through rooftop solar-based generation.”

Earlier in January 2021, Tata Power had received a Letter of Award (LoA) from KSEBL to develop a 110 MW rooftop solar project which is expected to generate about 274 MUs of energy per year.
