The Company has been a front-runner[weasel words] in introducing state-of-the-art power technologies. Tata installed India’s first 500 MW unit at Trombay, the first 150 MW pumped storage unit at Bhira, and a flue gas desulphurization plant for pollution control at Trombay. At 2.4% the Company’s transmission & distribution losses are among[weasel words] the lowest in the world. Tata Power has served Mumbai’s consumers for over nine decades.

Outside Mumbai, the company now has generation capacities in the States of Jharkhand and Karnataka and a Distribution Company in Delhi. The Distribution joint venture with the Government of Delhi called the “North Delhi Power Limited” (NDPL), has met with considerable success. NDPL services over one million consumers spread over 510 sq. kms. in the North Delhi area. The peak load in this area is about 1,259 MW, with energy consumption of over 6,900 MUs.
