UN body registers Tata Power's solar project in Gujarat
Tata Power Company has said that it has registered its 25 MW project at Mithapur, Gujarat, with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This will allow the company to trade the Certified Emission Reductions (CERs), it will earn from the renewable energy project. Tata Power intends to have a 20-25 per cent contribution from "clean power sources", the company said in Ahmedabad. This is Tata Power's second CDM registered project after the 50.4 MW Khandke wind farm in Maharashtra. The company plans to add 150-200 MW of wind power and 50 MW of solar power capacity every year. Tata Power's Mithapur project is one of the largest of its kind in the country and has crossed 43,000 MWh of generation since its commissioning in January 2012.
