Tata Motors to sell power to Tata Power for 3 MW solar rooftop in Pune

Tata Motors has plans to build and manage a 3 MWp rooftop solar project at its Passenger Vehicle Business Unit (PVBU) facility in Pune and has signed a solar power purchase agreement with Tata Power. This solar rooftop project is expected to generate about 4.5 million kWh per year, resulting in a reduction of 3,538 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

Tata Motors, as a signatory to the RE100, is committed to utilising 100 per cent renewable energy in its operations and has made numerous steps toward this objective by gradually increasing the amount of renewable energy utilised in its operations. The company’s automobile factories in Pune and Sanand generated 26.10 million kWh of renewable electricity in FY21, accounting for 25 per cent of the company’s total power usage (111.3 million units). This resulted in the reduction of 18,672 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide. To fulfil its goal of sourcing 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030, the firm aims to source renewable energy more rigorously

In June 2021, Tata Motors and Tata Power jointly had inaugurated a grid-synchronized, behind-the-meter solar carport at the Tata Motors car plant in Chikhali, Pune. The 6.2 MWp solar carport deployed by Tata Power will generate 8.64 million kWh of electricity per year and is estimated to reduce 7,000 tons of carbon emissions annually and 0.16 tonnes over its lifecycle.
