Tata Power Solar Commissions India’s Largest Solar and Battery Energy Storage Project

India’s Tata Power Solar Systems Limited (TPSSL), a fully integrated solar company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), has successfully commissioned the country’s largest Solar and Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) project.

The development comprises of a 100 MW solar PV project coupled with 120 MWh utility scale battery energy storage system (BESS), at Rajnandgaon in Chhattisgarh.

TPSSL secured the project on an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) basis from the Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. (SECI) in December 2021. The order scope included engineering, design, supply, construction, erection, testing, O&M and commissioning of the projects.

The project is expected to generate an estimated 243.53 million units of energy annually and reduce carbon footprint of 4.87 million tonnes in 25 years, contributing significantly to India’s renewable energy goals.

Deepesh Nanda, CEO and Managing Director, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited, said: “The successful commissioning of the largest solar and battery storage project for SECI, reflects the technical expertise and project execution skills of Tata Power Solar. This will ensure round-the-clock green energy, and accelerate the renewable energy transition through innovative solutions.”
