Tata Power Green Energy (TPGEL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has commissioned a 225 MW Hybrid power project in Rajasthan.

The power generated from the project will be supplied to Tata Power, Mumbai Distribution under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), valid for 25 years, to fulfill its Renewable Purchase Obligation.

This is the first hybrid project developed by Tata Power consisting of recently commissioned 225 MW of solar power at Noorsar, Rajasthan and existing wind assets of 96 MW, which is expected to generate about 700 MUs of energy per year. The plant will annually offset approx. 700 million kg of CO2.

Hybrid power

With the addition of 225 MW of hybrid power to Tata Power’s Mumbai customers, the revised power supply portfolio will rise to 38 per cent non-carbon power. It will be nearly double the mandatory RPO obligation. Against the yearly requirement of nearly 5,200 MUs annually, the non-carbon supply will be about 2,000 MUs.
