Tata Power Renewable Energy commissions its 120 MW solar project in Gujarat

Tata Power Renewable Energy has commissioned a 120 MW solar project in Masenka, Gujarat. The solar project is commissioned by Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), a 100 percent subsidiary of Tata Power, and is expected to produce 305247 MWh annually for Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited.

Reportedly, about 381,000 modules were used in the installation, and the project will reduce up to 103000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. The project featured thin-film glass-on-glass modules with various wattages and harnesses with capacities ranging from 440 Wp to 460 Wp. With this addition of 120 MW, Tata Power now has 3,520 MW of operational renewables capacity, including 2,588 MW of solar and 932 MW of wind. Tata Power has a total renewable capacity of 4,920 MW, with 1,400 MW of projects in various stages of implementation.

In April 2022, TPREL commissioned a 300 MW project in Dholera, Gujarat. According to the company, it is the largest single-axis solar tracker system in India. Annually, the project would generate 774 MUs of electricity. It would also lower carbon emissions by roughly 704,340 MT per year. A total of 873,012 monocrystalline PV modules have been used for this project.
