Tata Power has registered its 50.4 MW wind project at Samana, Gujarat, under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The project is expected to generate about 76,000 CERs (certified emission reduction) per annum.

The wind plant at Samana, commissioned in May 2009, uses 63 wind turbine generators of 800 KW each.

It helps reduce an annual average of 96,821 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, by producing 104,970 MWh per year (average) equivalent amount of clean energy.

THIRD PROJECT

The plant is Tata Power’s third CDM registered project, with another 50.4 MW wind project at Khandke, Maharashtra, and a 25 MW solar project at Mithapur, Gujarat, registered in June 2010 and January 2013. Another wind project is in the process of registration.

Tata Power has 376 MW of operating wind power generation capacity and 28 MW of solar power capacity.

ROOFTOP SOLAR

Its subsidiary Tata Power Delhi Distribution has commissioned a 1 MW grid-connected rooftop solar plant in Delhi.

A 60.48 KW solar power plant has also been functional on top of one of the buildings at its Mumbai office.

Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power, said, “We have always established that ‘clean and renewable energy’ is the need of the hour and Tata Power will continue its efforts towards this.”

The company proposes to add 150-200 MW of wind and 50 MW of solar power capacity each year.
