The solar plant will generate as much as 160 million units (kWh) of energy per year and can eliminate about 110,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere in year one.

Tata Power Solar executive director and CEO Ashish Khanna said: “Today, pace of delivery and quality have become crucial benchmarks in the industry and we are especially proud to have delivered a project of this scale in record time.

“By bringing together our core strengths in domestic manufacturing and EPC services over the last 25 years, this 100 MW plant is the largest project commissioned by us to date.”
