History: Our Legacy

Guided by our Founder Mr. Jamshetji Tata’s vision that ‘clean, cheap & abundant power is one of the basic ingredients for the economic progress of a city, state or country’, Tata Power commissioned India’s first power plant- the hydro-electric station- in Khopoli (72 MW) in 1915, the second hydro station one in Bhivpuri (78 MW) in 1919 and the 3rd one in Bhira (300 MW) in 1922. With these three hydro stations and the 1,580 MW (100 MW merchant) thermal power station in Trombay, Mumbai; a 478 MW power station near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand and a 1050 MW power station at Maithon in Jharkhand, an 87 MW thermal power plant in Belgaum, 72 MW in Haldia, 120 MW in Jamshedpur. It also has renewable energy generation capacity of 1383 MW. Tata Power is the largest integrated power company in India and is the most trustworthy power supplier to Mumbai.

Recent Additions to Capacity

In addition, we have the largest installed capacity for wind generation to the tune of 300 MW and are adding another 97 MW at the present moment. The 300 MW wind farm is distributed in three different states of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Gujarat. In the state of Jharkhand, Tata Power has set up power generation from waste heat and coke oven gases. This capacity is an additional 240 MW in Jamshedpur and Haldia. Tata Power has developed India’s first Ultra Mega Power Plant (UMPP) in Mundra, near Bhuj. The 4000 MW station will has five boilers each with a 800 MW unit size using supercritical technology that has a higher efficiency (43%) compared to that of a sub-critical boiler (37%). Further, a 2 x 525 MW power plant has been developed at Maithon.

Tata Power Wind Power Projects India

The company has installed a 60kW Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic (PV) system at the Corporate Centre, Mumbai. This is the first rooftop solar system that has been synchronized with the grid.

In addition to the 110 KW solar PV based power generation that was set-up years ago, the company has also set up a 3MW PV based power generation facility at Mulshi in Maharashtra, which has been operational since March 2011.
