Tata Power Solar commissioned 820.8 kWp at Cricket Club of India (CCI), Mumbai in 100 days.
The Stadium was inaugurated by Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Honourable Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Tata Power Solar joined hands with Cricket Club of India to utilise the potential of solar energy. The installation of this solar rooftop project helped to generate over 1.12 million electricity per year, which led to 25% of savings in the power consumption cost.
At present, on an average (apart from Stadium Flood lights, which run on DG), the Stadium consumes 4 lakhs kWh /month. However, with the new solar installation, on an average basis the consumption from the grid would fall to approximately 3 lakhs kWh/month.
CCI will also be able to curb the emission of over 840 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
Mr. Premal Udani, President, CCI and Mr. Rakesh Kapoor, Vice Chairman of Infrastructure and Green Technology Committee, CCI said, “We continuously look at projects which promote renewable energy focus, and are glad to partner with Tata Power Solar to execute this landmark project for us. They have delivered on the promise of the brand TATA. We have set an example to use rooftop space in the stadiums to help protect the environment.”
Mr. Ashish Khanna, President, MD & CEO, Tata Power Solar said, “After executing the world’s largest Rooftop in a single location and India’s largest carport at Cochin International Airport, Tata Power Solar has installed the world’s largest Rooftop in a Cricket Stadium at CCI Mumbai, in a record period of 100 days.”
