In a separate sustainable effort, Tata Power collaborated with Tata Motors to develop a 7 MWp solar rooftop project at the latter's manufacturing plant in Chikhali, Pune. This joint venture is the third phase of a joint 17 MWp on-site solar project developed by the two companies, of which 10 MWp has already been installed.
Recently, both the companies also signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for this solar project. The rooftop installation is collectively expected to generate 23 million units of electricity, mitigating 5.23 lakh tonne of carbon dioxide. The companies have said that this will be equivalent to planting 8.36 lakh trees over a lifetime.
