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, the company claimed, is the equivalent of planting over 2.72 lakh teak trees over a lifetime.

Anal Vijay Singh, Plant Head, Pantnagar Plant, Tata Motors, said, “The plant has been recognised 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.”

Tata Motors' Pantnagar plant manufactures the Ace small commercial vehicle.

Shivram Bikkina, Chief – Solar Rooftop Business, Tata Power, “ We are happy to be a part of the Pantnagar plant that makes Tata Ace, one of the most successful commercial vehicles of the country.  We hope to expand our collaboration in the years to come 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. It has cumulatively installed 45 MW of solar rooftop across Tata Motors’ passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle plants in Pune, Pantnagar, Jamshedpur and Dharwad.
