Tata Power Renewable Energy Commissions 110 MW Solar Power Project for Kerala

Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), a subsidiary of The Tata Power Company Limited and one of the major renewable energy players in India, has commissioned a 110 MW solar power project in Bikaner, Rajasthan.

The project will supply 110 MW of green power to the Kerala State Electricity Board.

Further, the project is expected to generate approximately 211 MUs (million units) and reduce a 2,58,257 MT (metric tonne) carbon footprint annually. The project has used 2,59,272 mono-bifacial PERC half-cell modules.

The installation is one of the fastest commissioned projects in Rajasthan and in spite of the various challenges such as tough land topography, extreme weather conditions, temperatures touching 50+ degrees, cold winters and sandstorms, along with adverse geopolitical challenges, the project was completed within a stipulated period of 7 months.

Speaking on the project commissioning, Ashish Khanna, CEO, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited, said: “This 110MW solar power project will help meet the green energy requirements of the state of Kerala. The commissioning of such big projects within the stipulated time frame reaffirms Tata Power Renewable’s commitment to making a substantial contribution towards the green energy transition in the country.”

With this installation, the total renewables capacity of TPREL reaches 6,788 MW with an installed capacity of 4047MW (Solar – 3,106 MW & Wind – 941 MW) and 2,741 MW under various stages of implementation.
