The renewable energy firm will sign a 25 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co Ltd (MSEDCL) which will be subject to the approval of Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) with applicable tariff. 

This is part of MSEDCL’s 1,000 Mw grid-connected solar power projects for which the distribution company had invited bids through competitive bidding process for 25 years. 

“Renewables is a focus area for us and we are looking at expanding in the renewables space, especially in Solar.

Tata Power's renewable energy capacity has crossed 2,000 Mw and green generation portfolio -- consisting of solar, wind, waste heat recovery and hydro -- has crossed the 3,400 Mw mark, the company said.
