2018-08-30 Projects Power Western India
Tata Power Solar, India’s largest integrated solar company and Tata Power Company Limited's wholly-owned subsidiary, has commissioned 820.8kWp at Cricket Club of India, Mumbai. The project was executed by Tata Power Solar to provide solar rooftop solution for the stadium located at Mumbai and was completed in 100 days. Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Honourable Chief Minister of Maharashtra did the inauguration of the stadium. Tata Power Solar joined hands with Cricket Club of India to utilise the potential of solar energy. The installation of the solar rooftop project will help to generate over 1.12 million electricity per year which will lead to 25% of savings in the power consumption cost. At present on an average (apart from Stadium Flood lights, which runs on DG), the stadium consumes 4 lakhs kWh /month, but with solar installation, on an average basis the consumption from the grid would fall to approx. 3 lakhs kWh/month. CCI will also be able to curb the emission of over 840 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
