MUMBAI: Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd, a subsidiary of Tata Power, has successfully commissioned a 25 MW solar farm in Maharashtra’s Satara district, the company said on Monday.
The 130-acre plant, located at Palaswadi village in Maan taluka, uses crystalline silicon photo-voltaic technology.
“We are delighted to announce the commissioning of yet another large solar project of 25MW,” said Anil Sardana, managing director at Tata Power.
The plant is expected to generate about 46MU per year, which will enable Tata Power to meet its solar renewable purchase obligations.
It is one of the largest solar plants set up by a private power utility in Maharashtra. The power produced by it will be evacuated through the state transmission network.
Maan taluka is a water-scarce, drought-prone region of Maharashtra. The company has begun construction of check dams, which will harness rain water and make it available for irrigation and other uses that will benefit the locals.
