In order to create a 4 MWp on-site solar project that will increase the solar capacity of the commercial vehicle production plant to 9 MWp, Tata Motor and Tata Power have engaged in a Power Purchase Agreement.

The Pune facility of Tata Motors, which has both production facilities for commercial and passenger vehicles, installed a 15 MWp solar project that may produce up to 21 million kWh of renewable power till FY22. As a member of the RE100, Tata Motors also pledged to use only renewable energy over the following several years, and numerous actions have already been made to support this goal.

Tata Power has a track record of successfully implementing numerous large solar rooftop solutions, including two of the largest rooftops in the world: 2.67 MW at Cochin International Airport and one of the largest rooftops in the world (16 MW) at a single location at Radhasoami Satsang Beas (RSSB), Amritsar.

The Cricket Club of India (CCI), one of the largest solar-powered cricket stadiums in the world, is situated in Mumbai and has an 820.8 kW capacity. In Bangalore, Dell Technologies has a solar vertical farm with a 120kW capacity, and Tata Chemicals in Nellore has a floating solar project with a 1.4MW capacity.

In addition, Tata Power is running a significant residential rooftop initiative across all of India to educate people about the advantages of solar energy savings.
