  • Both companies aim to build a resilient and sustainable future
  • Tata Motors to procure 100 percent renewable energy goal by 2030

Tata Motors has collaborated with Tata Power to develop a 7 MWp solar rooftop project at Tata Motors’ Passenger Vehicle Plant in Chikhali, Pune. Having said that, this is the third phase of a joint 17 MWp on-site solar project developed by the two companies, of which a 10 MWp has already been installed earlier. After this latest installation, the Tata Motors PV manufacturing unit, installed by Tata Power, will become home to India’s largest on-site solar project.


Tata Motors has been working towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions to achieve Net Zero Emission goal. With fresh agreement to install an additional Roof Top solar plant of 7 MWp in our Pune plant in association with Tata Power, we will move closer to our goal of 100% Renewable Energy. Post commissioning of this capacity, we will become the largest onsite solar installation in India,” as commented by Rajesh Khatri, Vice President, Operations, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd.

Besides this, Tata Motors and Tata Power have signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for this solar project. The aim behind this is to build a resilient and sustainable future. Furthermore, this installation is likely to generate 23 million units of electricity, mitigating 5.23 lakh tonnes of carbon dioxide. This will be equivalent to planting 8.36 lakh trees over a lifetime. Tata Motors has been using 100 percent renewable energy in its operations for a long time now. The homegrown automaker generated 92.39 million kWh of renewable electricity in FY22, accounting for almost 19.4 percent of total power usage. It further plans to obtain renewable energy so as to reach its goal of procuring 100 percent renewable energy by 2030.


"India's largest on-site solar project at Tata Motors' Pune plant is a testament to our shared goal of being green in our businesses. The project reinforces Tata Power's position as one of India's top renewable energy players, offering considerable value to its partners through its project execution capabilities and technical expertise," as commented by Gurinder Singh Sandhu, Chief – New Business Services, Tata Power.
