Tata Motors has signed a solar power purchase agreement with Tata Power to install and operate a 3MWp rooftop solar array at its vehicle assembly plant in Pune.

This solar rooftop project is expected to generate nearly 4,500,000 KWh per year, reducing carbon emissions by approximately 3,538 tonnes per year.

Operations chief Rajesh Khatri said: “After the recent inauguration of India’s largest solar carport at our car plant in Pune, this project marks a new milestone in our ongoing efforts to reduce our impact on the planet.

“We will continue to conserve energy in our manufacturing facilities, optimising consumption of non-renewable fossil fuels, energy productivity, climate change mitigation and lower operating costs.”

Tata Motors is committed to using 100% renewable power and has taken several steps towards achieving this goal by progressively increasing the proportion of renewable energy used in its operations.

In FY21, the company’s car plants in Pune and Sanand generated/sourced 26.10m kWh of renewable electricity, which is 25% of its total power (111.3 million units) consumption.
