Tata Power collaborates with Tata Steel to set up 41 MW grid connected solar power projects

Tata Power and Tata Steel have collaborated to develop 41 MW capacity of grid-connected solar plants in Jharkhand and Odisha. 

A 21.97 MWp photovoltaic (PV) project will be set up at Jamshedpur and a 19.22 MWp one will be set up at Kalinganagar. Under the PPA, at Jamshedpur, Tata Power will develop rooftops PV with 7.57 MWp capacity, while floating and ground mounted capacity would be 10.80 MWp and 3.6MWp, respectively. The ground mounted PV will be installed at Sonari Airport, Jamshedpur. Kalinganagar will have 9.12 MWp rooftop PV capacities, and floating PV will constitute 10.10 MWp.The companies have signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for a duration of 25 years to set up the project, which will be a combination of rooftop, floating and ground mounted solar panels. The estimated energy generation through the project will be over 60MUs for the first yearand 1,409 MUs in its lifetime of 25 years. It will help offset 45,210 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year and 1.06 million tonnes during its lifetime.
