Built as part of the Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) and for their captive consumption, the plant is based at the Andhra Sugars Limited, Chemicals and Fertilizers Division, Kovvur, Andhra Pradesh, the company said in a press release.

Tata Power Solar said that Andhra Sugars Limited opted for solar energy to fulfill its renewable obligation.

However instead of 0.5 percent of total energy as per the obligation, they proactively opted for incorporating a significant higher percentage.

The 3 MW plant, built as part of the first phase, contributes to more than 15 percent of their Kovvur plant's power requirements, it added.
