Ceat said that it has tied up with Tata Power to establish a 10MW captive solar plant at the latter’s Solapur site for powering its tyre manufacturing facility in Bhandup (Mumbai).

While Ceat will hold 26 per cent stake in the SPV, Tata power will own 74 per cent, as per the captive generation rules, it said. Ravinder Singh, Chief-Solar Rooftops Business at Tata Power said that through TP Akkalkot, we aim to continue to build a robust renewables portfolio and expand our horizons in the captive power generation sector
The power generated will be used for captive consumption by Ceat’s Bhandup plant, the company said. It added that the plant is expected to generate about 21 million units of energy per year and will annually offset approximately 17.43 million kg of CO2.

The setting up of the 10MW captive solar plant will not only reduce Ceat’s dependency on non-renewable energy but will also be a significant milestone in the company’s goal towards carbon neutrality, the tyre maker said.

Tata Power had an order book of over Rs 8,700 crore and a capacity of around 2,800 MW in 2020-21. It has a portfolio of more than 5.4 GW of ground-mount utility-scale solar projects and over 500 MW of rooftop and distributed generation projects across the country till date.
