Tata Power, the first power utility in Maharashtra to offer a green power tariff, inspired over 27,000 Mumbai consumers to switch to renewable energy.

A special initiative for Green Power adoption was launched this festive season encouraging consumers to opt for clean and green power to illuminate their homes. The initiative was a resounding success with 6,274 new consumers opting to become green champions.

The Green Power movement led to ~270 MUs of green power consumption which is equivalent to offsetting 200 kilotons of carbon emissions annually. Our 3,576 consumers belonging to the 0-100 unit's category, are leading this energy transition with delight and setting the perfect example for consumers in other categories to adopt Green Power for the future.

At a marginal cost over and above the existing tariff, consumers are empowered to choose the proportion of renewable energy in their consumption, ranging from 25% to 100%. Tata Power is committed to sourcing green power for its consumers from its wind and solar plants across the country.

"Tata Power is a leader in the Distribution domain, with approximately 13 million consumers across the country. We have launched several sustainable initiatives like Green Tariff, ESCO services, Smart Metering, DSM programs et al to encourage consumers to opt for energy efficiency and conservation. Our Mumbai consumers are a shining example of how green practices can be made mainstream. Their collective commitment towards Lifestyle for Environment (LiFE) will encourage others to follow suit." Said Mr Sanjay Banga, President, T&D, Tata Power.

With its consumers, Tata Power is co-creating a legacy of sustainability and innovation and transforming the power distribution landscape in the country with its green energy solutions and services.
