Key Takeaways

  • Tata Power has commissioned a 25 MW solar power plant at Gujarat Solar Park
  • Commissioned ahead of schedule, it is located on 113 acres of land in Charanka
  • Tata Power will sell solar power generated by the plant to Solar Energy Corporation of India at a tariff of 4.43 INR ($0.068) per kWh

Indian renewable energy project developer, Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd. (TPREL) has commissioned a 25 MW solar power plant in Gujarat. Located in Gujarat Solar Park at Charanka, which is sometimes also referred to as Charanka Solar Park, the project has been commissioned ahead of schedule.

TPREL had won this capacity under the National Solar Mission in November 2016 when it was tendered by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). It takes TPREL’s total installed operating capacity to 1,484 MW – with solar contributing 954 MW.

Charanka plant by TPREL stands on 113 acres of land. Clean power generated by the plant will be sold to SECI for a tariff of 4.43 INR ($0.068) per kWh for the next 25 years.

“We aim to create a focused renewable energy business in TPREL with a sustained growth trajectory. The commissioning of the 25 MW solar plant in Gujarat marks a milestone in our drive, to grow our portfolio of clean and renewable energy generation,” said Rahul Shah, CEO, TPREL.

Gujarat Solar Park is being developed as a multi-developer, multi-facility multi-technology and multi-beneficiary solar park. It includes both wind and solar power capacity. Once fully operational, it will have 590 MW of cumulative capacity here. As per information available on the website of Gujarat Power Corporation Limited (GPCL), the nodal agency for the development of the park, 430 MW of PV capacity had been commissioned. With Tata Power switching on its 25 MW here, the capacity commissioned should now stand at 455 MW.

The Gujarat project commissioning by TPREL follows a 30 MW PV plant commissioned by the company in Maharashtra recently (see Tata Power Commissions 30 MW PV In Maharashtra).
