Tata Power Renewables to set up India’s first group captive solar plant for a residential society

Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL) has signed an agreement with Vivarea Condominium, a residential society in Mumbai, to supply solar power. The first of its kind, the 3.125 MW solar plant will be set up at Himayatnagar, Maha­rashtra, to power the society with clean energy. TPREL will undertake the construction, operation and maintenance of this captive solar power plant, which is expected to generate about 7.5 MUs of energy and offset 6.15 metric tonnes of CO2 in the first year. The project will be commissioned by October 2023 and will provide green power to Vivarea Con­dominium at approximately 40 per cent less than the cost of existing tariffs.
