New Delhi, Jan 24 (PTI) In a step towards expanding rural electrification, Tata Power Delhi today implemented a solar microgrid project at a village in Vaishali district of Bihar.

The TPDDL (Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited) project has been implemented in Tayabpur village having an estimated 190 hutments with a population of around 1,000, a statement said.

The project is in line with the Centre’s electrification program which aims to set up standalone off-grids where Central grid supply has not reached or is not feasible, it said.

A microgrid can function independently with a local source. It is especially beneficial towards establishing a small network of consumers.

“For the project, TPDDL has been supported by TataTrusts, MIT, Prayas Juvenile Aid Centre and General Electric (GE) to set up a self-managed solar microgrid which will help in enhancing quality of life,” the statement added.

TPDDL CEO Praveer Sinha said, “We hope through implementation of the Tayabpur project, we will have a model for installing and developing smart microgrids in the country, thus ensuring access to affordable, reliable and consistent energy for all.”
