Tata Power has been associated with the growing legacy of Mumbai as a business city for almost a century now. Mumbai's growth has been literally powered by Tata Power's reliable power supply.
The Company has since spread its footprint across the country and abroad. Outside Mumbai, the Company now has generation capacities in the States of Jharkhand, West Bengal, Gujarat, and Karnataka and a Distribution Company in Delhi and Ajmer.
The thermal power stations of the Company are located at Trombay in Mumbai, Jojobera and Maithon in Jharkhand and Belgaum in Karnataka and Mundra in Gujarat. The hydro stations are located in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra and the wind farms in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Karnataka. An optimum mix of hydel and thermal capacity enables the company to supply power at competitive tariffs to its customers.
At 1.9% the Company's transmission & distribution losses are among the lowest in the country. Also, at the core of reliable power supply to the city is the unique 'Islanding' system pioneered by Tata Power, due to which the city of Mumbai has the advantage of assured uninterrupted reliable supply of power. In case of a grid failure, an "Islanding system" ensures power supply within the city limits.
The Company's growth plans include steady capacity addition year-on-year, taking its current installed capacity to 20000 MW by 2025.
