Tata Power has developed the project through its subsidiary, Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL). The commissioning of the wind farm means that the company’s total installed capacity now stands at 9,183 MW, in addition to 2 million customers it serves through retail power distribution. TPREL also has a further 500 MW of wind capacity under development and construction in the states of Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka.
“The commissioning of the 44 MW wind farm project fortifies Tata Power’s vision of generating significant percentage of its total generation capacity from clean energy sources” said Mr Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, Tata Power. “The project is a clean energy project, which will enhance and increase the Company’s clean energy footprint, across its value chain. This is our fourth wind asset and we are in constant look out for similar opportunities in respect of wind and solar plants.”
Mr Sardana added that the project is yet another step towards the company’s commitment to sustainability and will help it to contribute towards building the nation stronger. TPREL proposes to grow its capacity through organic and inorganic means over the next few years. Its strategy emphasizes the development of clean energy generation from non-fossil fuel and renewable energy sources to balance the carbon emissions from fossil fuel based generation capacity while contributing towards energy security of the country.
