Indian utility Tata Power Co Ltd (BOM:500400) on Tuesday announced the commissioning of a 30-MW solar park in the western state of Maharashtra.
Developed by Tata Power Renewable Energy (TPREL), the photovoltaic (PV) plant is situated in the village of Palaswade, Satara district, and uses domestically-made crystalline silicon PV modules. Its annual output is expected to exceed 62 million kWh of electricity, which will be enough to meet the demand of over 14,000 local homes per year, the developer estimates.
The project is part of TPREL’s efforts to become a renewable energy company with “a sustained growth trajectory,” said CEO Rahul Shah.
According to its website, Tata Power owns 3,180 MW of renewable energy assets, including 936 MW of solar and 1,140 MW of wind parks.
