Tata Power will develop one of its largest photovoltaic based solar power plants with an installed capacity of 28.8 mega watts in Satara district in Maharashtra by December 2013.
The plant will be spread over 130 acres of land. Tata Power (Distribution), which supplies power to the city, has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for a term of twenty-five years in order to purchase power from this solar plant, thereby meeting its solar renewable purchase obligations (RPO).
The power generated will be transmitted through Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Limited's network. Anil Sardana the Managing Director of
Tata Power, said, “Tata Power strives to reduce its carbon footprint. We would like to thank the government of Maharashtra and all our stakeholders for the support extended for the setting up of this solar power project at Palaswadi in Satara.”
