Princeton Digital, Tata Power sign solar agreement for 48 MW Mumbai data center

Princeton Digital Group (PDG), Asia’s leading data center provider has signed a renewable Power Consumption Agreement (PCA) with a subsidiary of Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), one of India’s largest renewable energy companies. Under the agreement, PDG’s MU1 data center in Airoli, Mumbai will consume power generated by a solar project located in Nanded district, Maharashtra.

Reportedly, the project is a captive development with investment from both companies that will provide PDG’s MU1 its first phase of renewable energy. The project will commence generation in steps starting 1st June 2023. Furthermore, the long-term agreement will enable PDG to take a meaningful step towards digital decarbonization by establishing a roadmap for its MU1 data center to be powered with up to 50 per cent renewable energy.

Earlier this month, TPREL commissioned a 110 MW solar power project in Bikaner, Rajasthan. The project would supply 110 MW of green power to the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). The project is expected to generate approximately 211 MUs and reduce a 2,58,257 MT carbon footprint annually.
