Tata Power, erstwhile known as Tata Electric, pioneered the generation of electricity in India nine decades ago. The company started as Tata Hydroelectric Power Supply Company in 1911, it got its new status with the amalgamation of two entities viz, Tata Hydroelectric Power Supply Company and Andhra Valley Power Supply Company in 1916. Today, it is the country's largest private power utility, established as a licensee in Mumbai and with ambitious expansion plans from being essentially Mumbai-centric to a major national player, not only in the fields of Power but also in Energy and Broadband Communication.
Tata Power commissioned India’s first power plant- the hydro-electric station- in Khopoli (72 MW) in 1915, the second hydro station one in Bhivpuri (75 MW) in 1919 and the 3rd one in Bhira (300 MW) in 1922. With these three hydro stations and the 1,350 MW thermal power station in Trombay, Mumbai; a 475 MW power station near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand and an 87 MW thermal power plant in Belgaum, Tata Power is the largest integrated private power company in India and is the most trustworthy power supplier to Mumbai.
The Tata Power Company Limited is India's largest private sector power utility with an installed generation capacity of over 2785 MW. The company has emerged as a pioneer in the Indian power sector, with a track record of performance, customer care and sustained growth. Tata Power has a presence in all the segments of the power sector viz generation (thermal, hydro, solar, wind and liquid fuel), transmission and distribution
Recognized as India’s largest private sector power utility, with a reputation for trustworthiness, built up over nearly nine decades, Tata Power surges ahead into yet another year with plans of sustained growth, greater value to consumer and reliable power supply.
Led by a powerful vision, Tata Power pioneered the generation of electricity in India. It has now successfully served the Mumbai consumers for over ninety years and has spread its footprints across the nation. Today, it is the country’s largest private player in the sector. Apart from Mumbai and Delhi, the company has generation capacities in Jojobera, Jharkhand and Karnataka.
Tata Power has an installed power generation capacity of above 2300 Mega Watts, with the Mumbai power business, which has a unique mix of Thermal and Hydro Power, generated at the Thermal Power Station, Trombay, and the Hydro Electric Power Stations at Bhira, Bhivpuri and Khopoli, accounting for 1797 MW. Its diverse generation capability facilitates the company in producing low cost energy, thereby giving its consumers a greater value for money.
Among its many achievements that Tata Power can proudly boast of are the installation and commissioning of India’s first 500 MW unit (at its Thermal Power Generating Station, Trombay) the 150 MW Pumped Storage Unit at its Hydro Generating Station, Bhira, and environmental control systems like the Flue Gas Desulphurisation plant.
