Tata Motors partners with Tata Power to develop a 7 MW solar project at its Pantnagar manufacturing facility

This solar plant will generate 215 million units of electricity, mitigating over 1.7 lakh tonnes of CO2; equivalent to planting 2.72 lakh teak trees over a lifetime.

Reaffirming Tata Group’s commitment towards promoting sustainable manufacturing, Tata Motors and Tata Power have entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for a 7 MW captive solar power project at its Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand. Collectively, this installation is expected to generate 215 million units of electricity, potentially mitigating over 1.7 lakh tonnes of carbon emissions. This is equivalent to planting over 2.72 lakh teak trees over a lifetime.

Mr. Anal Vijay Singh, Plant Head, Pantnagar Plant, Tata Motors, said “Having won several awards, our Pantnagar plant has always been lauded for its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to achieve net-zero emission goal. The plant has been recognized across the industry for its long-successful energy conservation measures. With this agreement, we will further strengthen our journey towards a cleaner and greener future.”

Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Shivram Bikkina, Chief – Solar Rooftop Business, Tata Power, “We are delighted to partner with Tata Motors to achieve their long-term green energy mandate. We are especially happy to be a part of the Pantnagar plant that makes Tata Ace, one of the most successful commercial vehicles of the country.  We expect to expand our collaboration in the coming years to provide more such green energy solutions to Tata Motors and regard them as a vital partner to achieve the larger group mandate to reduce our carbon footprint towards a Net Zero future.”

Tata Power is working closely with Tata Motors on installing solar rooftop projects at some of their plants in India. These projects represent a significant step towards building a resilient and sustainable future for these manufacturing plants. To date, Tata Power has cumulatively installed 45 MW of solar rooftop across Tata Motors’ PV and CV plants in Pune, Pantnagar, Jamshedpur and Dharwad.

Tata Motors, as a signatory to the RE100, is committed to using 100 percent renewable energy in its operations and has taken many steps toward this objective by gradually increasing the proportion of renewable energy used in its operations. The company also plans to obtain renewable energy with greater rigour to reach its goal of procuring 100% renewable energy by 2030. In FY22, across all its plants in India, the company generated 92.39 million kWh of renewable electricity for its manufacturing operations, which is 19.4% of the total power consumption, leading to an avoidance of 72,992 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent and financial saving of Rs. 27.37 crores.
