Tata Power Co., Ltd.

Company Background

Tata Power is India's largest private-sector power company. As for electricity generation, it operates thermal, hydro, wind and solar photovoltaic power plants. It also handles transmission and distribution. It is a core company of the Tata Group, one of India's three major conglomerates. Tata Sons, the group's holding company, holds a 30% stake and is the largest shareholder.

Electric power, along with steel-making, is a business that Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, who founded the Tata Group in 1868, long aspired to develop. According to his wishes, the group established three electric power-related companies in the 1910s. In 1915, the group's first hydroelectric power plant began operating. The three companies were more or less run as a single entity until being formally integrated in 2000 to create the present Tata Power.

The chairman of Tata Power, Cyrus Mistry, also heads Tata Group. The company also has operations in Africa and Southeast Asia.
