The Economic Times:

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

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

With the addition of 225 MW of hybrid power to Tata Power Mumbai's customers revised power supply portfolio will rise to 38% non-carbon power. Against the yearly requirement of nearly 5,200 MUs annually the Non-carbon supply will be approximately 2,000 MUs.

Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, "The project will supply power to our Mumbai Discom and their customers and will substantially enhance its non-carbon commitment. It also reflects our commitment to make the use of non- carbon energy to meet the clean and green energy goals of the country."

This is the first hybrid project developed by Tata Power consisting of recently commissioned 225MW of Solar power at Noorsar and existing wind assets of 96MW which is expected to generate about 700 MUs of energy per year.
