The addition of the project will take Tata Power’s renewables capacity up to 4,611MW, consisting of around 2,947MW installed and 1,666MW under implementation.

As well as receiving an order to set up a 320MW PV plant in India that is expected to be complete by May 2022, Tata Power Solar recently ramped up a PV manufacturing plant in Bengaluru, taking the total capacity of solar modules and cells up to 1.1GW. The Tata Power subsidiary said at the time that expansion is based on the “significant increase in demand” it has seen for its solar equipment. 

As of the end of June, India’s total installed solar capacity was 46,130MW, according to research and consultancy firm Bridge to India, which is forecasting the country to add a further 4,580MW of solar capacity in the second half of 2021.
